A court case between Telstra and Optus regarding their online broadcast of NRL and AFL matches has been found in favour of the copyright holder, Telstra.
The Full Federal Court overturned an earlier court ruling that allowed Optus’ “TV Now” service to effectively broadcast AFL matches online, without having to pay for the rights of their use.
The court ruled in favor of Telstra, who had already bought exclusive online broadcast rights to AFL matches, worth $153 million.
More details on this case can be found on the Australian Copyright Council’s website.
