On Monday, 22 June 2020, from 10 pm to midnight, buildings throughout Switzerland were bathed in red light. The occasion was the “Night of Light”.

SUISA also took part in this campaign and had its headquarters in Zurich illuminated in red. (Photo: screen shot video Nina Müller)To notice

SUISA annual results: Authors and publishers of music receive more money from the past year

In the past year, SUISA generated income of CHF 160.9 million from the exploitation of copyrights in Swit-zerland and abroad. Income from concerts and the online sector in particular contributed to this good result. Including secondary income, total revenue amounted to CHF 176.3 million. The good result bene-fits composers, lyricists and publishers of music, who will receive more money from SUISA this year. However, SUISA expects a massive decrease in income for the current year and next year due to the pre-sent coronavirus crisis.To notice
