WORLD CUP NOTES: NWS Digital Asia "has secured a package of non-exclusive mobile and internet rights in Vietnam" to the 2014 FIFA World Cup. The deal ensures that BallBall, the News Corp-owned broadcaster’s online portal, "will carry a wide range of programming from the tournament to complement the official match highlights." This "will include themed video packages, daily round-ups, data feeds, infographics and written editorial" (SOCCEREX, 6/23). ... The Delhi High Court "issued an injunction order restraining around 400 private websites" from beaming World Cup matches. The judge, who listed the matter to come up in the last week of July, "gave the directive after hearing Saikrishna Rajagopal who was arguing on behalf of Multi Screen Media Entertainment (Sony) which holds the exclusive rights for beaming the matches in India" (INDIAN TELEVISION, 6/23).
