New Delhi: Sony Pictures Networks India (SPN) has secured a Dynamic John Doe injunction order from the Delhi high court to protect infringement of copyrights for two of the upcoming international cricketing series.

The order applies to India–Sri Lanka Men’s International Series in July 2021 and the India–England Men’s International Series in August and September 2021. The Dynamic John Doe will shield SPN from unlawful and unauthorized dissemination of IPs on the internet and other social media platforms.

The injunction order restrains Internet Service Providers (ISPs), cable operators and websites from carrying content that violates SPN’s copyright in the broadcast and digital transmission rights for the cricketing series. With the Dynamic injunction, if SPN finds that other ISPs and websites are violating its copyrights, it can obtain an injunction against them also. Besides, to combat piracy on the ground, the court has appointed two local commissioners to ascertain and report to the court whether the Multi-System Operators (MSOs) and Local Cable Operators (LCOs), are distributing or transmitting the cricketing events illegally.

SPN has acquired from the England and Wales Cricket Board Limited (ECB) as well as from Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) an exclusive license to broadcast in the territories of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar and the Maldives for the India Tour of England 2021 and worldwide, excluding Sri Lanka, for the India Tour of Sri Lanka 2021.

The matches will be available on SPN’s linear channels SONY TEN 1, SONY TEN 1 HD, SONY TEN 3, SONY TEN 3 HD, SONY TEN 4, SONY TEN 4 HD, SONY SIX, SONY SIX HD and its digital platform SonyLIV.
