Brussels, July 18 - The European Court of Justice
on Thursday backed an Italian rule on advertising limits on paid
television, marking a legal victory for the Italian regulator
Agcom, which fined satellite provider Sky Italia for jamming its
broadcasts with more ads than allowed.
''The Italian law on television advertising, which
prescribes lower time-limits for advertising for pay-tv than
(free) broadcast television, is in principle, in accordance with
European Union law,'' the European Court wrote.
Sky Italia gave a fighting response, saying in a statement
''the game is still on,'' because the final decision must be
made by a judge in the Italian court where the case began.
Sky Italia sought recourse to in the Lazio regional
administrative court (TAR), which turned to the European Court
for an interpretation of European rules on the matter.
''It is for the national judge to decide if the more rigid
advertising-ceiling, imposed only on pay-tv and Sky, is
legitimate,'' the statement said.
