MUMBAI: Multi Screen Media (MSM) has moved the Delhi High Court over illegal streaming of the 2014 FIFA World Cup by several websites. The sports arm of MSM, Sony Six is the official broadcaster of the football extravaganza, while its digital platform LIVSports.in has the exclusive rights to live stream the event.
The network has moved the court after it found out that several unauthorised websites were streaming the World Cup matches.
The case which is up for hearing on 23 June, will be heard by a bench comprising Justice Siddharth Mridul and Sunita Gupta. Advocate Saikrishna Rajagopal will present the case on behalf of MSM.
The counsel sought an early listing of the matter on the ground that these websites were interfering with the network’s rights.
