–Swiss Federal Council Downplays Filesharing Concerns
(December 5, 2011)
A report from Switzerland’s Federal Council, compiled at the request of
the country’s legislature, says that illegal filesharing is not a
significant problem. The report rejects three proposals aimed at
combating the issue: a three-strikes plan, similar to that codified in
France; Internet filtering; and a collective licensing plan that would
allow unlimited filesharing for a fee. The report says that consumers
still spend money on entertainment products, and that filesharing is a
concern only for “large foreign production companies,” which need to
adapt their business models to include consumer behavior instead of
trying to push for legislation that seeks to maintain an outdated
system.
