FA TO KICK ISRAELI POOLS INTO TOUCH?

The Jewish Chronicle (sorry – no link available) reports that Football Data (the commercial agents of the FA Premiership and Nationwide League) and the Scottish Premier League and Scottish League have submitted a claim in the Tel Aviv District Court against the Israel Council for Gaming in Sport (Toto). Football Data is claiming that Toto is infringing its copyright in British football fixture lists by including British matches in its pools listings. The practice has been going on since 1967. Toto insists that it is not infringing but refuses to disclose its defence until it is in court.

The IPKat draws his readers’ attention to the fact that a case concerning football fixtures is coming up for hearing before the ECJ on 30 March.
