All HALE the ALE. Let's hear it for the Pub Landlady whom has taken on Sky Sport and ESPN and WON. yahoo

Today the European Court has ruled that Sky/ESPN don't, in fact, have any Copyright on live sport, only on pre recorded, theme tunes and the like. In other words, they don't own it in real time only the history.

Does this mean F1 will be available again without having to mortgage your soul?, probably not, what I think it means is that live sport will be a thing of the past with televised sport running a few seconds behind real time.

So, has Goliath been beaten, I think not but at least their strangle hold has been put under the spot light for once. Cry

You go girl. sign-great-job

I've been wondering about this for about a week now since I saw a message
"only available for Greek customers"
or similar go accross the screen at my local pub (the name is withheld to protect the guilty).

Why does Greece want to see our league football every Saturday? It must only be done to get round a loophole putting the illegality onto the viewer. The latest court case was absolving the viewer of guilt. Who will they go after next?
