Submission + - SPAM: Australian court allows "time-shifting" of sport o

brindafella writes: "In a landmark case, the Federal Court in Australia has allowed a major non-rights-holding telco to 'broadcast' sport onto client's mobile phones, thus undermining the possible income streams of sporting bodies. The judgement, made on Wednesday 1 February 2012, partially settles a case between Singtel Optus Pty Ltd (the telco) and National Rugby League Investments Pty Ltd (No 2) that sells the rights to the rugby league coverage. This article explains the case in plain language.

The judge declined to determine some matters of possible infringement, notably, "These include whether Optus infringes copyright because the technology used to make a recording in the format suitable for certain Apple devices creates and stores six temporary files of 10 seconds duration every minute and then deletes the first 10-second file as the latest one is added one minute later.""
