Spanish Court Clears Streaming Sports Link Index Rojadirecta

June 2010


A Spanish appeals court has upheld a lower court’s decision and found that Rojadirecta, a site that indexes links to unauthorized streams of sporting events, is not breaking any Spanish laws.  Rojadirecta, which has been offering streams of NBA, MLB, NFL, FIFA and other sports leagues since 2005, was sued for copyright infringement in 2007 by Audiovisual Sport, a unit of Spanish communications group PRISA. The appeals court said that Rojadirecta was merely providing an index of links, and although it did carry advertising, profits were not being made directly from infringement.
