Other new areas of development
Regarding its domestic distribution, ProLitteris implemented new regulations for works published online only. ProLitteris will remunerate for the first time in autumn 2019 rightsholders (authors and publishers) for texts published online. In order to participate, publishers had to install a counter on their websites. Texts having more than 1000 visits from Switzerland and fulfilling the other conditions of the distribution regulations are entitled to a remuneration.
