On 10 September, the European Official Journal published a notice of a case brought in June 2011 to the European Court of Justice (ECJ) concerning whether the provision of the Audiovisual Media Services Directive (AVMS Directive) that makes short news clips virtually free violates fundamental property rights. The case involves Austrian public broadcaster ORF versus pay TV provider Sky Austria. Sky owns exclusive rights to broadcast UEFA Europa League matches in Austria and negotiated a deal with ORF for paid use of short clips of matches in news bulletins. After the AVMS Directive was implemented into Austrian law, ORF sought to get out of the deal and take the broadcast excerpts for free off the Sky satellite feed. ORF argued that the AVMS Directive allows it to take the clips on a "fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory basis" for a compensation fee that "shall not exceed the additional costs directly incurred in providing access." ORF maintains there are no such costs because it can access the satellite feed at no additional cost to Sky. The Austrian Federal Communications Board referred the case to the ECJ, to resolve whether Article 15, Paragraph 6 of the AVMS Directive is compatible with Articles 17 and 16 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union and with the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (ECHR).
