    Default European Court ruling on foreign decoders in pubs

    The European Court of Justice has ruled in favour of a pub landlady being pursued by Sky and the Premier League for using a foreign decoder in her pub to show games.

    Good news I think, wonder what the effects may be.

    Don't hold your breath, some bits are still copyright

    But today’s verdict also warned: ‘The screening in a pub of football-match broadcasts containing protected works requires the authorisation of the author of those works.’

    Such ‘protected works’, said the judges, could include the opening video sequence or the Premier League anthem, which is a matter for copyright.
