About CIPS

The Centre also monitors, designs and disseminates various courses and programmes pertaining to training and research in Intellectual Property Rights.

About the Webinar

Topic: Broadcasting Rights and Fair Use in Sports

While the rise of social media platforms has contributed immensely to maintaining sports at the forefront of public consciousness, it has also unleashed a pandora’s box of new challenges in the field of copyright law. People today enjoy unprecedented ease in recording and uploading highlights and clips of sports on various social media platforms. This unauthorised broadcasting of the sport is panned by sporting organisations and broadcasters, who assert that this encroaches upon their intellectual property rights over the broadcast of the sport.

The assertion is often contested on the ground that the upload of these small clips doesn’t constitute infringement as it falls within the meaning of fair use or fair dealing under copyright law. However, the intention of the uploader in such cases is always questionable and would be decided on a case to case basis.

The Webinar provides an opportunity for a discussion on the legal issues pertaining to broadcasting and seeks to provide participants with industry insight on how broadcasting agreements are negotiated and drafted, the role of lawyers in advising clients in relation to such copyright claims and the process for filing take down notices.
