Delhi High Court stops rogue websites from broadcasting Asian Cup 2022


In a judgment related to a lawsuit brought by Star India Private Limited and Novi Digital Entertainment Private Limited, the Delhi High Court banned 11 rogue websites from streaming and broadcasting matches of the Asian Cup 2022.

Star India, which owns the global rights to the event, has filed a lawsuit as these websites (mentioned in their lawsuit) regularly rebroadcast live match content illegally and exclusive rights acquired by the broadcaster is violated.

Justice Prathiba M Singh, while noting that various sporting events are usually broadcast and streamed in an unauthorized manner through various websites, said that Star India owns the global online streaming rights and no other website should therefore broadcast the event illegally. The court also ordered domain name registrars (DNRs), the Department of Technology (DoT), the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (MeiTY) and internet service providers to immediately block domains of these websites and to maintain the status quo.

“…until the next court date, Defendants Nos. 1 through 11, and all others acting for or on their behalf, will refrain from hosting, broadcasting, broadcasting, rebroadcasting, retransmitting or in any other manner of communicating to the public, or broadcasting to the public, all cricket events, clips, clips, highlights in relation to cricket matches relating to the 2022 Asian Cup commencing from 27th August 2022 to 11th September 2022 “, ordered the Court.

“Said restraining orders will be issued by the DoT within 24 hours of service of this order. Pursuant to said blocking order(s), all ISPs, i.e. defendants nos. 19-27, will block access to URLs, as well as mobile applications within 24 hours and will not allow downloading of these applications or streaming from rogue websites,” the order added.

The Asian Cup is set to kick off on Friday August 27 with the first match between Afghanistan and Sri Lanka. The other teams participating in the event are India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Hong Kong.
