Lawmakers call for end to Books and Authors Law

Claiming it is harming authors and inflating prices, MK Yoav Kisch (Likud) told a Knesset Education, Culture and Sport Committee meeting on Wednesday the Books and Authors Law, which is half way through a trial period, should be abandoned early.

“We are in a country that believes in a free market, believes in competition, and believes in minimal intervention in these things,” Kisch said.

Intervention in the book market is completely against these values, as Israel is regulating artificially high prices on the book market, he added.
