Norwegian commercial broadcaster TV2 will face a claim for compensation after the Oslo District Court ruled that its use of clips from Premier League matches infringed upon pay-TV operator Viaplay’s rights to the top tier of English club football.

The Court has concluded that TV2’s use of clips from seven Premier League matches in the first four rounds of the 2022-23 season was unlawful, while allowing for clips from four matches featuring Arsenal and Manchester City under the public interest provision owing to the contributions in these games of Norwegian national team stars Martin Ødegaard and Erling Haaland.
