Newsletter no. 6/2015 “Legal Information”

Dear Madam, Dear Sir,

We have the pleasure of sending you herewith no. 6/2015 of our Newsletter “Legal Information”. We hope you will enjoy reading it.


01    Federal Council wants to modernise copyright: consultation process under way

The Federal Council wants to modernise copyright. This includes combating internet piracy more effectively without criminalising the users of such services. At the same time, the legal rules that apply to the latest technological developments are to be amended. The draft amendment of the Copyright Act (CopA), which the Federal Council submitted for consultation today, is guided by the recommendations of the copyright working group (AGUR12). Two World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) treaties were also sent for consultation at the same time.

Yours sincerely,

Federal Institute of Intellectual Property
