Pirated online content against the new Swiss copyright law

10.01.2020


As of recently, Switzerland is trying to sort all of their copyrighting problems out by bringing intellectual property protection into the digital era. This initiative aims to promote the elimination of the country from a list of copyright protection watchlist in the United States. This new adopted law is focused on hosting providers with the main target being the people hacking the online content.

The aim of the new regulations is that providers are required to ensure that the content that violates copyright previously found on their servers does not find its way back to their sites. The responsibility to ensure that the content has been removed from their servers is entirely up to the providers, and if there is evidence that they have not done that, they will be held responsible.

Another important aspect regarding this regulation is that the Internet service providers will not have to block access to piracy sites, a measure which is not exactly beneficial for the copyright holders’ groups. They hoped that this regulation would be finally revised efficiently.

Consumers can still enjoy downloading movies or music, content made available without the consent of the copyright holder. They will not face penalty for these actions as long as the content is for private use.  Instead, downloading computer games and software is still a crime. Content providers who infringe copyright on their servers will be notified by a court order. Failure to comply would result in a fine of up to 1000 USD for each day of non-compliance.

The Swiss government declares that this new law should strengthen the ground in the fight against online piracy and cease any discussion that criticizes Switzerland as a host country for website infringement.
