(6/29/2014)

PT Nonbar (Nonton Bareng = Watching Together) who holds exclusive Indonesian broadcast rights for re-broadcast of the World Cup has served cease and desist orders (somasi) on 12 starred hotels in Bali who they claim have illegally shown World Cup 2014 in their Bar and Restaurants.

As reported by beritadewata.com, the legal representative of PT Nonbar, Fredrick Billy, said on Monday, June 23, 2014: “PT Nonbar as the holder of exclusive broadcast rights is issuing a somasi to 12 hotels from among 50 hotels restaurants because we believe they have illegally conducted commercial broadcasts of the World Cup 2014.”

Among the 12 hotels cited by PT Nonbar are Hotel Radiant, The Bali Khama, Sofitel, Peninsula Beach, Princess Benoa, Kind Villa Bintang Resort, Grand Beach Nusa Dua, Grand Aston Sanur, Conrad Bali, Four Season and Grand Mirage Club.

Fredrick Billy said the hotels failed to obtain permits from PT Nonbar as the coordinator of broadcast right for public showings of the World Cup
PT Nonbar
has conducted “sweeping operations” at a number of hotels in Bali featuring public showings of the World Cup that had not paid for and obtained permits. As a result, PT Nonbar claims they suffered significant financial losses due to the illegal broadcasts.

According to Billy, the offending hotels (and other still being verified by his company) violated Sections 49 and 72 of Law No. 19 of 2002 on copyrights and are subject to 7 years in prison and a fine of Rp. 5 billion. (US$416,000).

The hotels were given a strict time limit to obtain the needed permit to avoid PT Nonbar pressing forward with the case.

PT Nonbar reportedly owns license form PT International Sport Marketing (ISM) to coordinate public showings of the World Cup in Bali.

While four Indonesian TV Cannels held the right for the TV broadcasts of the World Cup (TV One. ANTV, Qvition and Viva Sky), PT Nonbar holds right for coordinating public showings in hotels, restaurants and malls.

The cost to obtain the right to show the World Cup in the public areas of hotels for a three-star hotel is Rp. 60 million (US$5,000), four-star hotel Rp. 80 million (US$6,600) and five-star hotel Rp. 100 million (US$8,300).
