On 22 January, in Case C-283/11 Sky Österreich GmbH v Österreichischer Rundfunk (ORF), the European Court of Justice Judgment ruled that the limitation of costs for broadcasting short news events of high interest to the public, such as football matches, is valid. The Charter of Fundamental Rights does not preclude the compensation which holders of exclusive broadcasting rights may seek from other channels for short news reports from being limited to technical costs.
Only the original language version is authentic and it prevails in the event of its differing from the translated versions.
