Spain's Audiencia Nacional (National High Court) has dismissed a fine imposed by communications and competition regulator CNMC ordering the broadcaster Mediapro to pay EUR 6.6 million for agreeing four-year TV rights contracts with the football teams Real Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla and Real Santander. The regulator imposed the fine back in November 2013 on the grounds that the contracts signed were in breach of antitrust legislation but Mediapro and the four clubs successfully argued that the CNMC retroactively applied the fine and failed to take into account European law in the sphere.
