Licence mandatory for commercial establishments to air World Cup matches

The authorised distributors Novex Communication Pvt Ltd reiterate that it is illegal to show TV signals of the ‘One Alliance’ bouquet. Restaurants, pubs, bars and coffee shops with a capacity of more then 50 people need to acquire rights through an agreement with Novex to show any of the matches of the ICC World Cup 2007. Hotels too fall within the purview of this judgement.

A press statement quoted: “It is a cognisable and non-bailable offence under section 63 and 69 read with Section 37 and 51 of Copyright Act 1957 and section 379 read with section 114 of Indian Penal Code and section 2 (7) of Sales of Goods Act and police can cease the equipment such as TVs, Cables etc. Receiving signals through DD, DTH or CAS for commercial use is also prohibited under the law and is equally punishable.”

SET Discovery Private limited and its authorised distributors Novex Communications reserve their right to take appropriate and necessary steps to prevent the infringement of the copyrights of its principals and violation of the tariff orders.

According to a judgment of the Apex Body, none of the commercial establishments like hotels, restaurants, bar or clubs can telecast any of the shows without prior contract with the broadcaster or their authorised distributors Novex Communications.

The One Alliance channels are MAX, SAB, SET PIX (World Cup telecasting channel), AXN, Discovery, Animal Planet, MTV, NICK, NDTV-42X7, NDTV Hindi, Animax, Discovery Travel & Living, NDTV Profit, Ten Sports and SET.
