Abstract

This chapter discusses whether the Copyright Law of China and related regulations provide adequate exceptions for the print disabled people (PVI) to appreciate works of visual art by translating two-dimensional forms such as paintings into three-dimensional objects, and what should be done to promote that goal further. It examines China’s international obligations in providing copyright exceptions for the PVI and clarifies to what extent China has satisfied these obligations in sections ‘China’s international obligations’ and ‘China’s current setting’. The chapter investigates how China can revise its current legal setting and provide more room for PVI to experience two-dimensional visual art works in their three-dimensional forms. The copyright exceptions for the disabled offered by China seem to fail to meet the requirements of the Marrakesh Treaty. Amendments to the related parts of the Copyright Law of China or even new regulations are needed to both meet the requirements of the Marrakesh Treaty and further facilitate PVI’s access to visual art works.
