The National Federation of the Blind has 
a federal court to add it to the 
named in a 
brought by the Authors Guild and others against the HathiTrust digital 
repository and five universities. In its filing, the federation invoked the 
principle of equal access to information guaranteed by the Americans With 
Disabilities Act. The federation said the rights of the blind people it 
represents would be obstructed if the plaintiffs in the case succeeded in 
impounding the digital works in the trust and in preventing further digital 
scanning of copyrighted material.
