Abstract

This article highlights the limited protection available to sports webcasters and organizers against online piracy of their webcasts under the Indian copyright law. It posits that with growing popularity of digital viewership of sports events, this lacuna has created an uneven playing field between sports broadcasters and webcasters, which has an overall negative impact on the local sports industry.
