FIFA World Cup 2022: One day left for FIFA World Cup 2022 start: Will you be shocked to hear the ticket price?
Viacom18 had moved the Madras High Court against more than 12,000 websites for illegally broadcasting the FIFA Football World Cup. The Madras High Court, which heard the petition, blocked more than 12,000 websites from illegally broadcasting the FIFA World Cup 2022. Viacom has sole ownership of the rights to the Event. In this context, Justice M Sundar issued an interim order today (November 19) to prevent illegal broadcasting.
Viacom 18 had filed a case in the High Court claiming that it has exclusive rights to broadcast the FIFA World Cup 2022 in Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. Viacom had submitted all the documents issued by FIFA stating that it has all the necessary broadcasting rights including television rights, broadband, mobile broadcasting rights and radio. It had also given the court a list of around 12,037 websites that it claimed were infringing its exclusive copyrights.

After examining all these documents, the court would be unfair to Viacom if it did not grant an interim injunction. It therefore adjourned further hearing of the case to December 16, ordering those websites, internet service providers or any other person not to infringe Viacom’s copyright over the FIFA World Cup.
