01    Federal Council publishes report on resale rights

The introduction of a resale right would allow visual artists to receive a share of the proceeds from the resale of their works through art dealers. The Federal Council today adopted a report on this subject, which fulfils a postulate from Council of States member Luginbühl. The report presents various possibilities for the resale right and analyses the economic impact of its introduction.

 

02    Changes to the IPI Fee Regulations as of 1 July 2016

The Federal Council today approved a change to the IPI Fee Regulations agreed by the Institute Council on 6 November 2015. The change, which will enter into force on 1 July 2016, makes specific amendments to the methods of payment and further clarifies them.

Yours sincerely,
