Licencing Internet Cafés

Published fredag 21 september 2007 kl 12.33

A judgement in Sweden’s Supreme Administrative Court means that Internet cafés now may have to apply for licences to stay open.

The newspaper ”Dagens Nyheter” reports that the court decided to uphold a judgement from a lower court that Internet cafés should fall under the same legislation as amusement arcades.

They have to apply for licences, have limited opening hours, and have to pay a fee to the local council every year.

But MP Karl Sigfrid is not impressed and is demanding a change in the law, saying that the legislation was not drawn up with Internet cafés in mind, only pinball machines.
