Citizens Vote ‘No’ To Fixed Book Prices In Switzerland

Having returned from a busy weekend, I was finally able to check to see if the results of the Swiss Referendum had been announced.

According to RTN (link in French), 56.1% of voters rejected the initiative. It passed in only six French-speaking cantons.

When the world changes, we must adapt or die. I’m glad most people realized that allowing publishers to dictate the prices at which books are sold is not the way to save bookstores.
