Wrong graphic on the ballot booklet: The Federal Council is more clear – a little

Opponents of “Lex Netflix” allege that the federal council falsified the voting booklet. A “clarity” has just been published. But rivals are not happy about that.

Switzerland will soon have to decide whether to pay the fees for streaming services in May.

A few weeks before the controversial “Lex Netflix” poll, the tide is rising. The Referendum Committee filed voting complaints in several cantons. The reason: a graphic in the voting booklet. Opponents of the law say this is wrong. Many countries are shown on the map of Europe with investment or tax liability for streaming services.

The Federal Council is not so comfortable with the card right now. He decided Wednesday that he is now the federal chancellor “Specifying information” Released. It says: “The map of investment lists countries with investment liabilities, including the ten generally binding countries with rules for streaming providers, which should, if possible, promote the production and entry of European films. മാ The map will look different considering only the countries with a particular investment or tax liability. Then Finland, Ireland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and Cyprus will not be colored.

Opponents of the film law are happy with the insight, but still want to stand firm on the complaint. Because, “it suggests a film tax standard of 4% in Europe,” Jungfreisinnigen president Matthias Mർller wrote on Twitter. According to Mുള്ളller, only France, Italy and Spain know how to charge such a large sum. While checking the card, the Federal Chancellor noticed another error. But this time to the detriment of rivals: “Slovakia was mistakenly white, although we know streaming providers are subject to a fee,” the specification says.

Switzerland will vote on “Lex Netflix” on May 15. The new film law is intended to make streaming providers like Netflix or Disney + more accountable. Four per cent of their revenue from Switzerland should go to levy platforms, which would then flow to Swiss filmmakers. (mg / agl)
