Court Vacates Stay, but Trial will Continue

Chennai High Court has vacated the stay on mobile companies transmitting SMS scores, but has said that mobile companies will have to maintain their accounts separately for earnings obtained from this service.

The case is committed to trial and the court will examine whether SMS rights are maintainable, and whether cricket boards (sports bodies) can define SMS rights separately and then sell them off.

In the meantime, the second one-day match has started and Pakistan are at 108/4 in 23.3 overs. The mobile companies may probably consider transmitting the scores for the rest of the day.
