MSM moves Delhi HC to restrain websites from streaming Fifa WC
MUMBAI: Multi Screen Media (MSM), the media rights holder for the 2014 Fifa World Cup, has moved the Delhi High Court to restrain certain websites from infringing on its rights by streaming the matches.
The bench comprising justices Siddharth Mridul and Sunita Gupta listed the matter for hearing on 23 June.
MSM counsel Saikrishna Rajagopal sought an early listing of the matter on the ground that as several websites are interfering with its rights, ‘with each passing day, I [MSM] am suffering’.
The tournament, which began on 12 June, will conclude on 13 July.
MSM, which owns and operates sports channel Sony Six, has the media rights for Fifa World Cup 2014 and 2018. The network had launched a digital sports platform Liv Sport to live stream the tournament.
