    Cool TVC Wins Payback from SKY



    It is no secret that TVCatchup has faced a bloody and long drawn out battle from several of the broadcasters, but few people have been aware that this battle has been fought on several major fronts.

    Having successfully fought off accusations of illegality against TVC in the High Court brought by ITV together with a few of their more scurrilous and petty allies, few are even aware that the ever popular SKY felt left out and decided to try to jump on the bandwagon.

    Whether it was an attempt at creating a safety net just in case the first attempt failed, or whether it was the pursuit of economic warfare – for everyone knows how deep the broadcaster's pockets are – will probably never be known. Few people are likely to ‘fess up that they have conspired to abuse the judicial system in such a blatantly contemptuous manner, especially after the News of the World fiasco.

    Fresh on the heels of their epic loss in the case of FAPL –v- QC Leisure (the pub landlady case), the 28th February saw SKY taking a further hammering in court – this time from TVCatchup. And what a hammering they received for the second time, with Justice Floyd ordering that their case immediately be vacated (set aside) and all costs awarded to TVC.

    Ordinarily that should be the end of things, we won, but they seem to have overlooked the little matter of settling the costs order against them. Presumably they have rather a lot of other things on their platter at the moment, but now it’s time for payback.

    And that payback comes in the form of the rather quaint language of the Writ of Fieri Facias in the case HC10CO2250 issued today by the High Court against SKY by TVC:

    ELIZABETH THE SECOND, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Our other realms and territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.

    IN THIS CLAIM it was on the 28th day of February 2012 ordered in this Court that the Claimants (British Sky Broadcasting Limited and British Sky Broadcasting Group PLC) do pay the Defendant (TVCatchup Limited) costs, which costs have been assessed and allowed at £15,942.25

    YOU ARE NOW COMMANDED to seize in execution the goods, chattels and other property of the First Claimant authorised by law and raise therefrom the sums detailed in the Schedule, [together with fees and charges to which you are entitled.] and immediately after execution to pay the Defendant (TVCatchup Limited) the said sums and interest.
    Wonderful stuff, and if they don’t stump up pretty damn quickly, then the Sherriff has been instructed to just help himself to goods from their HQ for auction on EBAY (not sure about the weather girls, though).

    Does it really get any better than this?

    Well done. It is good to put these greedy sorts on their back feet. Take the money and blow it on a big party for all the people who have been working hard for the rest of us.

    You are also commanded to indorse on this writ immediately after execution a statement of the manner in which you have executed it and send a copy of it to the claimant.
    This brings all kinds of wild imaginings to mind....
    "We burst open the doors, brushing aside the receptionist who put up token defence, and made our way to studio number one where Sly News was being broadcast. We removed cameras and the newsreader's desk, which was a pity for him because as is common practice among newsreaders in hot studios, he was not wearing any trousers...."
    Please post when received!
