The following is a link to our blog on the WBU announcement.
The blog includes this comment on the WBU decision:
KEI welcomes the WBU suspension of its participation in the WIPO and EU
Stakeholder projects. In our opinion, the publishers have used the private
stakeholder discussions to undermine work on a treaty, and to shrink the
rights of persons with disabilities. Now scarce time, attention, resources
and ambitions can be focused on the more important historic effort to
obtain a treaty to protect the rights of persons with disabilities.
