An Israeli court has reportedly held that live webcasts of sports events on Internet don't violate copyrights so "live-footy.org web site will be allowed to continue free broadcasts of Premier League soccer games."
I'd really like to see the detailed decision. Apparently the judge held that copyright was not breached because web broadcasting is not the same as TV broadcasting and the web viewers would not necessarily therefore be lost paying customers. She refused to allow the identity of the website owner to be revealed and sanctioned the continuation of the sites coverage of the premier league.
Update: I forgot to mention that the Premier League are natually planning to appeal the decision.
