Switzerland Won’t Criminalize File-Sharing

Switzerland Won’t Criminalize File-Sharing

Unlike the Spanish government, which is going to fight file-sharing, the authorities of Switzerland are planning to protect it. Since the entertainment industry continued pressuring on piracy, the country decided to conduct a study in order to offer a better perspective on how file-sharing affects the situation in the industry.


Now the results of the study have been published, and they lead the experts to an unsatisfying conclusion for the entertainment industry: in fact, it seems that the present anti-piracy legislation is doing its job great and therefore doesn’t need any additions or changes.

The results of the study draw a very interesting parallel between some obsolete devices, like the photocopier, audio cassettes and VCR – as we know, all of the listed items are designed to make copies, – and the worldwide web – a wonder of our century, which pushed things to the entirely different level. The study claims that it was always just the fear of change that has pushed the entertainment industries to go wild about how any new device can destroy jobs and the entire industry.
This is exactly what Swiss government is agree on, indicating in their report that each time a new media technology had been released, it has always been abused by the entertainment industry. However, this is the price the society has to pay for progress. In our world, those who can use the new technology to their benefit will win, while those who missed the development in question and keep following old business models will lose.

In addition, the Swiss government is not alone who pointed at this axiom – findings extrapolated from some Dutch study confirmed that the entertainment industry hasn’t been really losing much money, though it claims billions in damaged. Despite the fact that around a third of Swiss citizens do download pirated entertaining content, including songs, films and games through the Internet, the income of the entertainment industry remains steady, according to the results of the study. Moreover, the Dutch report points out that file-sharers are more likely to visit live performances or purchase a game. And in the music industry, file-sharing is a great advantage for newcomers as a beneficial and free advertisement campaign. In other words, the government’s message to the entertainment industry is clear enough: whether it adapts or not, the country shall not change the current laws.

CaptCosmo avatarEnjoyable read SaM, thanks....

Remember when Swiss Movement (ANALOG) watches & clocks were state of the art? When electronic (DIGITAL) watches were invented, the Swiss did not adapt. This failure caused them to lose their lead in the "TIME INDUSTRY". Looks like it was a lesson learned well and they are applying what they learned to the "Entertainment Industry" now.

Just as you said above: "those who can use the new technology to their benefit will win, while those who missed the development in question and keep following old business models will lose". The "Entertainment Industry" has resisted every innovation/change along the way and lost to each and every one of them. Guys, you have almost waited too long to adapt or survive. After all, how many times can you shoot yourself in the foot and still be able to walk??

You better adapt or you're going to dry up and blow away with the dust. I for one won't mourn your demise or miss your greedy fingers always reaching for my pockets!

PzykoSkillz avatarThanks for the read Sam.

Captcosmo: The only thing about the watches is that now watch collectors prefer analog over digital. Swiss-made watches are usually more expensive b/c they are higher quality so I think it all worked out for them in the end.

trialNerror avatarGod bless the Swiss! Good food, gorgeous women, superb quality watches (I'd rather wear analog over digital any day) and the right idea about file SHARING.

Sharing is NOT stealing! And there are studies which prove what we do is not destroying the entertainment industry. Movies are still making millions & billions. CD's are still reaching platinum status. Video games are still being made every day and released every month. If what we did was SO terrible there would be nothing new from any form of entertainment.

Don't believe the news and media. They have been lying to us for decades.

fusseltier avatarswitzerland is the oldest democracy, and they actually get to vote for their laws... they vote 4 times a year.
what about swiss watches losing market? have you ever heard of swatch? swiss watches are still the best, just not the cheapest. there was a reason not to go digital. digital watches are not hand made, and you don't get the same quality as those really great swiss watches with a digital watch.
digital watches are cheap and disposable. swiss watches last longer than you do.
