    This article examines the implementation of the so called ‘Marrakesh Directive’, which transposes the Marrakesh Treaty into EU law and lays out rules on the use of accessible copies of published works, across six Member States – namely Germany, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, the Netherlands, and Sweden. It highlights convergences and divergences in the implementation and in the scope of access to copyrighted works guaranteed to persons with disabilities across the States considered. In that connection, this article also detects the extent to which the implementation of the Marrakesh Directive links to broader national disability policies and the implementation of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
