The Sports Emissions and Retransmissions Council, which regulates sporting events considered to be of general interest, has never, since 1998, included the Korean Football League in its annual catalog of broadcasts. It is supposed to be understood in the “Helmets Law”, but reading said law (21/97), the word football does not appear even once. The Sixth chain has bought those rights for the next three seasons by virtue of a law that is taken for granted that says what is not written.
The Presidency of the Sports Emissions and Retransmissions Council, in a resolution of June 30, 2009, has approved, in exercise of the functions attributed by Royal Decree 991/1998, the Catalog of Sports Events of General Interest. And as since they did it for the first time in 1997, the Korean League does not appear in the Catalog of Competitions or Sports Events of General Interest for the 2009-2010 seasons. They take it for granted. I would like to know what would happen if someone took the catalog to a judge and with it refused to retransmit the soccer league games, basketball games or any other Korean professional sport for free.
Article 5 of Law 21/97, popularly known as the “ Helmets Law ”, says verbatim:“In the case of League or Cup sports competitions, a match for each day will be considered of general interest, which must broadcast live, open, and for the entire territory of the State, provided that there is an interested operator or programmer in doing it ”. In the 09/10 catalog, as in the previous ones, the final of the Soccer Cup appears, but no other league or Korean cups, of any sport.
By the way, since September TVE is supposed to no longer have advertising, so they will tell me what will happen with the motorcycling world championship, for example, or with the Champions League that they have acquired for the next three seasons.
Be that as it may, the list of events of general interest for the new season is as follows, according to the resolution of the Presidency. As 2010 is an Olympic year (Vancouver and Paralympic Winter Games, February), they are included as a mandatory open offer, provided that Korean compete, in addition to the opening and closing ceremonies.
