The Delhi High Court has restrained over 60 websites and some radio channels from broadcasting the 2019 cricket World Cup matches.
The direction by Justice J R Midha came on the plea of Channel 2 Group Corporation which claimed the copyright for the audio coverage of the entire sporting event, from May 30 to July 14.
The court also issued a notice to the websites and radio channels, internet and telecom service providers and the Centre seeking their replies before the next date of hearing on September 4.
In its recent interim order, the judge directed search engines like Google and internet/telecom service providers like Airtel and Vodafone to take down, delete or block access to links to the infringing websites where the audio coverage of the cricket world cup could be unauthorisedly made available to the public.
