Modernisation of Swiss Copyright Law
The public consultation procedure on the revision of the Copyright Act (CopA) showed that the ideas on approaches to the revision diverged strongly. In autumn 2016, the Federal Department of Justice and Police (FDJP) therefore mandated the copyright working group AGUR12 II to clarify the outstanding issues from the consultation on the revision of the Copyright Act and to propose possible solutions. After five sessions between 28 September 2016 and 2 March 2017 under the direction of the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI), the AGUR12 II reached a compromise on various issues.
Cancelling a trademark due to non-use
From 1 January 2017, it will be possible to apply to the Federal Institute for Intellectual Property ("FIIP"), through a simplified procedure, for the cancellation of a trade mark that is not being used commercially and which, due to this fact, is not worth protecting. Until now, this cancellation had to be pronounced by law by a civil tribunal following a long and costly legal procedure.All magazine reports
