Sports technology and content company Sportradar says it has settled legal proceedings issued in the High Court in London last September against leading online solutions provider Betconstruct and two bookmakers.
The proceedings related the use of live tennis data from ITF events and tournaments which was not licensed by Sportradar or the ITF to Betconstruct or the two bookmakers.
In a Monday press release, Sportradar said that it has reached a confidential agreement Betconstruct and the two bookmakers to resolve all claims involving historic use of ITF live data, with Betconstruct paying Sportradar an undisclosed monetary sum and agreeing to take a license from Sportradar in relation to data from the ITF database going forward with the right to grant sub-licenses to the two bookmakers to use the data.
The company added that, by issuing proceedings, it had underlined its firm belief in the central importance and value of databases, and the database right, to the gaming industry. It had also proved that it will take all necessary and available steps, in any jurisdiction, to protect its database rights against unauthorized use.
