Contract amendment concerning access to Swiss film heritage

From 1.1.2024, when applying for the release of production support, production companies must be able to guarantee the Confederation that they will be able to make the film available to the Swiss public if it is no longer available on any free or pay platforms, five years after its first public screening.

SSA has prepared a model rider to extend the granting of copyright to the entire term of copyright protection only within the restricted framework of non-commercial access by the Swiss public to the audiovisual heritage. It will eventually incorporate this provision into all its model authors’ contracts.
