This chapter begins with a brief introduction to the copyright and human rights regimes, and explains how the Marrakesh Treaty is at the crossroads of human rights and intellectual property. It explains how copyright tools can be used to achieve human rights ends. It then identifies three general principles of treaty interpretation that inform the Guide’s analysis—emphasizing the Marrakesh Treaty’s object and purpose, adapting the Treaty to changing conditions, and promoting consistency with the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). It ends with a discussion of the background of the CRPD, including its central principles, and describes consultations that have gone on with stakeholders.
