Matchroom Boxing Ltd and another company v British Telecommunications plc and other companies

Copyright – Infringement. The claimants, Matchroom Boxing Ltd and another company, succeeded in their application for an order requiring the defendants (including BT) to take measures to block, or impede, access by their customers to streaming servers which delivered infringing live streams of footage of professional boxing matches staged by Matchroom, including events featuring the British boxer, Anthony Joshua. The Chancery Division ruled that it had jurisdiction to make the order sought, and that it was proportionate in all the circumstances.
