Uzreport TV won a lawsuit against Beeline in a claim for infringement of copyright and related rights, the channel’s website reported. On June 28, the Tashkent interdistrict economic court chaired by Judge Vitaly Li announced a decision on full satisfaction of the claim of UZREPORT IA LLC against UNITEL LLC (owns the Beeline trademark).
According to the court decision, the defendant UNITEL LLC is obliged to remove UZREPORT TV and FUTBOL TV from the Beeline TV mobile application and subsequently not to broadcast these channels without an agreement with UZREPORT IA LLC.
“The decision of the court on the full satisfaction of our TV channel’s claim against Beeline, of course, we consider it to be objective and fair. UzReport is currently preparing a lawsuit against Beeline, as well as against O’zbekiston Kabel Televideniyasi LLC on compensation for moral and material damage as a result of illegal actions,” Alisher Azimov, first deputy editor-in-chief of UZREPORT TV, commented.
It should be recalled that earlier UZREPORT IA LLC filed a lawsuit against Unitel LLC. The statement of claim noted that Unitel LLC was engaged in rebroadcasting of UZREPORT TV and FUTBOL TV channels in the Beeline TV mobile application without concluding an appropriate agreement.
