By SuperUser Account
London - It has come to our attention that certain bookmakers, including Marshalls World of Sport, Keith Ho BetXchange, Sepels Best Bets and certain branches of Hollywoodbets.net, have been displaying live British thoroughbred horse racing in their betting shops without being authorised to do so.
The display of British racing outside of the UK is licensed exclusively to GBI Racing by Racing UK and Attheraces. GBI Racing in turn has authorised Tellytrack to sub-license betting operators to display British racing in betting shops in South Africa.
The display of British racing in betting shops in South Africa without a valid sub-license to do so constitutes a breach of our rights (including copyright). A breach of copyright has civil as well as criminal consequences.
Bookmakers who are displaying British racing without a valid sub-license are hereby called upon to immediately cease infringing our rights by displaying British racing.
GBI Racing, Racing UK and Attheraces shall take all steps as are available to them in order to protect their rights without further notice. - GBI
