Kabel Deutschland to pay EUR 41.1 million to TV channels

Thursday 11 December 2014 | 10:23 CET | News
In the dispute between Kabel Deutschland and German private TV channels, a settlement of EUR 41.1 million was reached after almost ten years, Handelsblatt reports. The sum covers an 'appropriate remuneration' for copyright and related rights for feeding programmes into Kabel Deutschland's network. In 2009, the arbitration board at the German Patent and Trade Mark Office recommended a back payment. The High Regional Court Berlin also decided that the TV channels are entitled to a corresponding remuneration. Kabel Deutschland appealed at the Supreme Court in Berlin.
