No subsidies for hoteliers at the expense of artists – call for fair play from parliament

On 10 and 12 September, the Swiss parliament will be clearing up the last remaining issues in its revision of the Copyright Act (CopA). One of those issues is an idea that would favour hoteliers by putting Swiss artists at a disadvantage. It would see hotel operators and holiday apartment owners being able to use the copyright-protected works of artists without payment – even though they allow their guests to consume film and music on receivers in hotel rooms and holiday apartments as part of their commercial services. Swiss artists refuse to accept this coercion on the part of the hospitality industry and, in an open letter, are calling on the President of HotellerieSuisse and National Council candidate Andreas Züllig to play fair.To notice
