FOX (USA) VS local tv-channel


Semenov & Pevzner team represented the international heavyweight FOX in a landmark lawsuit against Russia’s regional cable TV provider that was illegally re-broadcasting Fox, National Geographic, and other TV channels. While piracy on provincial cable channels is rampant, lawsuits are rare: the costs of gathering evidence customarily outweigh potential compensatory damages. In a trailblazing effort, Semenov & Pevzner managed to challenge the status quo: the court put an end to the re-broadcasting and ordered compensatory damages of 500,000 roubles.
