Claims for Statutory Copyright for Screening Euro-League Matches Thrown Out by Israel Court

Euroleague

Charlton LTD has the franchise to screen Euro League football matches in Israel, and does so via cable television networks HOT and YES.

Charlton sued Sachar Abu Saah for screening the matches without permission, claiming statutory  copyright damages of NIS 100,000.

Judge Hadassa Asif of the Hadera Magistrate’s Court threw the case out since Charlton only attached some pages of their contract, and not all of it, and the defendant successfully argued that by not submitting the contract in its entirety the plaintiff had failed to establish that they owned the copyright allegedly infringed.
