Sky 'owed €35,000 from pub illegally showing matches'

Story :

A well-known pub in Dublin 4, The Beach Tavern, has been breaching Sky Sports premium soccer copyright since late last year, the Circuit Civil Court heard yesterday.

Barrister EJ Walsh told Judge Jacqueline Linnane that Premier League fixtures had been shown without licence in the pub since September 2017 and Sky UK Limited was seeking judgment in default of appearance against the pub owner Raymond O'Keeffe.

Ms Walsh, who appeared with Rachel Solanki of Eugene F Collins Solicitors for the broadcaster, said the pub had been written to on several occasions and asked to give an undertaking that it would desist from breaching Sky's copyright or, alternatively, apply for a Pubs and Clubs Licence, which would allow it to legally avail of the service.

She told the court Mr O'Keeffe had failed to do so and Sky was now seeking judgment against him.
