Download Files for Personal Use is Legal in Switzerland



Switzerland's Government declared recently that its current copyright laws will remain unchanged, this follows that its present laws do allow users to download music and movies web files for personal use on their personal computers. The statement is a concluding outcome from their extensive research and consultation by the government.
The worldwide entertainment industry has been continuously alerting Switzerland that the unauthorized downloading of music and movies affects their industry solvability. However, the present situation in Switzerland has unique characteristics from a worldwide perspective where their current copyright laws do permit for the downloading of content to be used personally, as acceptable and within the legal remits.
Nevertheless, the creative industry insists that the downloading undermines their business model. On the contrary, the concluding outcome from this extensive research in Switzerland by its Government presents different results on the consequences of unauthorized downloading showing a negligible impact on their business models. One key finding of the study is that downloaders spend as much if not more to acquire content legally as those who do not download. Researchers found no change in amount of disposable income spent on music and movies, despite the fact that roughly one third of Swiss people engage in some form of downloading.
Switzerland’s findings are just the latest in a series of reports showing that the downloading of music and movies is far less harmful than the entertainment industry would have us believe. A PDF of the government study, which is in German, may be found here.

We have collected adorable cute pictures of kittens for the enjoyment of our visitors and readers. A kitten (also known as a kitty or kitty cat) is a juvenile cat. After being born, kittens are totally dependent on their mother for survival and do not normally open their eyes until after seven to ten days.

After about two weeks, kittens quickly develop and begin to explore the world outside the nest. After a further three to four weeks, they begin to eat solid food and grow adult teeth. Domestic kittens are highly social animals and enjoy human companionship. Source.

Why You Cannot Get Ahead Without a Mobile App in 2015
Webmasters and keen followers of the news will all have been aware of the latest update from Google, which was launched on 21st April.
