Sky, Mediaworks, TVNZ and Lightbox have once again given Bypass Network Services Limited (BNSL) an ultimatum. Shut down by 12pm today, or we’re taking you to court.
Last week BNSL sought further clarification from Buddle Findlay, the lawyers acting on behalf of the big media gang. BNSL received this at 3:54pm on Friday.
BNSL has just replied to them asking them to consider a declaratory judgment instead of a full blown high court case. Statements from the big media gang say they are seeking to “clarify” the law, this seems like a good way to achieve that without crushing BNSL out of existence.
