Is this affecting Swiss libraries?

I just have one simple question. You may have heard that Harper Collins has set a limit on the number of times American libraries can loan electronic books out to their patrons before the book is erased and the library must repurchase it again.

I just have one question---is this affecting Swiss libraries or only libraries in America? For all I know Swiss libraries may not loan e-books at all, or Swiss law may prevent Harpers from doing in CH what they are doing in the US. If this isn't a problem in Switzerland, feel free to ignore this thread and let it sink. Thank you!
