Media Monitoring Africa welcomes the amendments to the new, fair and practical limitations and exceptions in the Bill in line with international treaties and practices. Provisions for media, research, education, civic and many other uses are welcomed, especially in the context of a developing country and in a digital world. The limitations and exceptions for people with various disabilities are also very welcome. In this regard and to further strengthen the commitment to fair and practical limitations,we urge and recommend that the Marrakesh Treaty is ratified by South Africa as an urgent step.
