Addressing the compensation flaw for authors: the Federal Council and Council of States both in favour of a contemporary lending right



The Council of States referred Peter Bieri's postulate "Revision of the Federal Copyright Law (URG). Introduction of a lending right" on 19 March, representing an important step in ensuring fair compensation for authors. The small chamber is mirroring the Federal Council, which recommended in February that the postulate be adopted. The Federal Council and the Council of States are thereby reinforcing their commitment to introducing the analogue and digital lending right as part of the impending partial revision of the Federal Copyright Law.
