Question 4: Page 83, paragraph 263: As noted In WT/ACC/TJK/24, question 94, this exception would not apply to books that the publisher makes available in Braille, regardless of whether the work was "originally" created in Braille or not.
Tajikistan's Reply: The exception in Article 20 (6) of the Law on Copyright and Neighboring Rights refers to reproduction of copyrighted works initially made available in a 'conventional ' manner. Such works can be reproduced using Braille, thus making them available to the blind. However, this exception does not cover the works that have been created to be published in Braille, which are protected by copyright as any other work.
