music and jazz genres. After a six month test operation
in 2001 we have started our service on August 2, 2002.
In December 2009 the Public
began its daily radio transmissions for
the Swiss Foundation Public Domain.

has stoped streaming after fiteen years with protected

with a copyright free collection of opera
Swiss Internet Radio
now a part of the Swiss Foundation
. A charitable organization in Switzerland,
specialized in the conservation and utilization of public
domain music and film material.
We see our mission as rescuing recordings from past decades,
produced on sensitive and easily damaged materials, from
deterioration and potential oblivion. Our first goal is
to have gramophone records and motion pictures, which
are an invaluable resource, transformed into longterm
readable and usable data files by expert staff, using
state of the art procedures (such as FLAC and Theora).
Our second goal is the investigation of the copyright
status, the cataloging of the description of any work
in our database
and the upload to Wikimedia Commons
