Federal Council adapts copyright law to the digital age
With the revision to the Copyright Act, the Federal Council wants to strengthen the rights and interests of creative artists and the cultural industries by taking a resolute approach to pirated online content. At the same time, it upholds the principle that consumers who take advantage of such illegal offers will not be criminalised. By providing measures that support research and libraries, it also wants to take advantage of the new opportunities that digitalisation has opened up. It approved the corresponding draft act and dispatch at its meeting on 22 November 2017. The draft bill is based on a compromise agreed upon by various stakeholders in a working group set up by the Federal Department of Justice and Police (FDJP). Media release.
