Racing: RacingUK take SIS to court over data rights
Tuesday 05 October 2004
RacingUK which screens pictures from Britain's 30 premier courses, with the exception of Ascot, has issued a High Court injunction against Satellite Racing Services (SIS). The injunction seeks to prevent SIS, which beams pictures to betting shops, from screening RacingUK tracks as it is claiming an infringement of data rights owned by the courses rather than the British Horseracing Board.
RacingUK report they have been inundated with applications to subscribe to their service since it ceased to be free-to-air at the weekend. David Bellin, the company's director of broadcasting, said: "Subscriptions this weekend have been 155 per cent above our forecast."
* Frankie Dettori tightened his grip on the jockeys' title when a 14-1 double at Windsor yesterday took his seasonal total to 171. Kieren Fallon, suspended for the day, is eight behind.
* Salisbury's showpiece Saturday card, switched from Ascot, is threatened by waterlogging.
