Ethiopia, Zambia, Cape Verde: Clarification on the management of television and radio rights of ORANGE AFCON, SOUTH AFRICA 2013

PARIS, Nov 28, 2012 /African Press Organization via COMTEX/ -- In order to avoid any misinformation campaign or polemics, LC2 ( wishes to clarify the situation of TV and Radio broadcasting rights of ORANGE AFCON SOUTH AFRICA 2013 for the territories of Cape Verde, Ethiopia and Zambia.

Logo: These rights are owned by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) and have been granted, through a license, LC2 Media - AFNEX, in exclusivity, for television and Radio broadcasting "via Terrestrial TV and satellite, by free TV", in every language and especially on Nigerian territory. These television and Radio rights are commercialized by CCFOOT Ltd located in Geneva (tel + 41 22 393 60 18).

In accordance with its letter of relaunch of November 7th this year to each of these three countries, LC2 recalls that the validity of its offers will expire on November 30th 2012.

Only television stations and media having purchased sublicense television and Radio rights to CCFOOT Ltd will be legally allowed to broadcast on the territories of Cape Verde, Ethiopia and Zambia ORANGE AFCON SOUTH AFRICA 2013, provided by the AFNEX Network "via Terrestrial TV and satellite, by free TV".

All other TV and Radio broadcast of ORANGE AFCON SOUTH AFRICA 2013 under these conditions and without prior written authorization of CCFOOT will constitute an act of piracy, leading to systematic and immediate prosecution by LC2 - AFNEX / CCFOOT, before the appropriate courts and authorities, without prejudice of all other legal action, might those measures be provisional.

May we remind that all acts of piracy (marketing or audiovisual) infringe on the CAF and CAF licensee's rights equally. Indeed, acts of piracy weaken the sporting event and its organizer and therefore puts at a great risk Africa's sport economics ( In the interest of sport economics, Africa in general and promotion of African football in particular, let's all enjoy the ORANGE ACN South Africa 2013 with the AFNEX Network (African Network and News Exchange).
