The French Audiovisual Authority ("CSA") revised its
decision of January 15, 2013 aiming at extending the possibility to
freely broadcast excerpts of sport competitions and decided to
restrict the right to freely broadcast 90 seconds of sport events
excerpts per hour to the sole TV channels and their catch up TV
services. Only four months after the decision came into force on
February 1, 2013, the CSA has announced on May 29, 2013 the opening

deliberation from January 15, 2013, considering that it upsets the
equality set by European law between compliance with rights of
sport competitions organizers and the public right to access sport
