The court order came on a plea filed by Sony Six, the authorised broadcaster of 2014 World Cup, alleging that several websites are interfering with its exclusive rights to stream matches of the international event on the internet. Indian company Multi Screen Media (MSM) Satellite Pvt Ltd, which owns Sony Six, informed the court that it is the authorised broadcaster of the 2014 FIFA World Cup in the Indian subcontinent and holds exclusive rights for telecast as well as streaming the matches.
