Legal Nature of TV Broadcasting Right, Protection and Limitations
Mohammad Shams, Vahid Qasemi Ahd
Determination of legal stance of the broadcasting institution in countries, where the main media (radio and TV) are managed in national form, is one of the most complicated legal and even cultural issues. Media's refusal of paying the broadcasting right fee on the one hand, and the insistence of sports organizations and clubs on the existence and necessity of such a right on the other hand, are against each other. However, it is necessary to determine the legal stance of national broadcasting company about the sports broadcasting right fee. The objective of this study was assaying the legal nature of TV broadcasting right and its support and limitations. Since those sports events, which have numerous fans, are held in organized form, proper contracts are required to be sealed by various clubs and organizations in charge of sport in order to determine the share of every institution. Also, an organization must be determined to interact with the broadcasting company.
