 The Saudi governments support for stealing the Premier League angered the chairman of the World Trade Organization


Before that, a Saudi pay TV station named beoutq illegally broadcast football events including the Premier League, Bundesliga, La Liga and the Champions League. They sold 3 million set-top boxes in the Middle East and North Africa to steal broadcast games, causing hundreds of millions of pounds of loss of broadcast fees to the Premier League, FIFA, UEFA and other parties. Premier league officials had previously appealed to Saudi courts, but the suit was dismissed by Saudi courts.

The Premier League then provided a lot of evidence to the world trade organization, which this week released a 123 page report, ruling that the Saudi government was behind the scenes in support of beoutqs pilfering competition, and urging the Saudi government to take immediate measures to deal with these TV piracy. Our agreement on intellectual property is very clear, said WTO President Roberto Azevedo. In terms of the operation of the global economy, these are fundamental rights and the relevant rules must be observed.

After the WTO announced its ruling, British MP Angus McNeill called on the British government to stop the Saudi Crown Prince from buying the Newcastle club. As you can see, the WTO has made a landmark decision on the protection of sports rights, which is one of Britains most valuable and valuable exports, he said in an open letter to Liz truss, the UKs secretary of international trade. According to the WTO ruling, the Saudi government has been actively supporting the piracy of beoutq since the beginning, which has stolen the commercial rights of British sports institutions for three years. This is an insult to the British government, an offence to the Premier League and an insult to British sports, which should not be tolerated. Now the entity that has been stealing high-quality content from British sports and entertainment is looking to buy the Premier Leagues Newcastle club. Why does the British government treat the Saudi government differently than any other government? I think the law applies to everyone, including the protection of British sports and British exports. The British government initially said it would not decide whether Newcastle would change hands, leaving the final decision to the premier league officials. But after the WTO ruling, the British government is now under increasing pressure to stop Newcastle from changing hands. Source: NetEase sports writer: Fu then editor in charge: Xu Zexin_ BJS4919
