BAYLOS secures victory for Atresmedia on landmark TV IP dispute

IP & Litigation boutique BAYLOS has secured a victory in first instance for Atresmedia against MC&F over the claim of the “El Rosco” of the “Pasapalabra” TV show

-

The Commercial Court n.8 of Barcelona has dismissed the lawsuit filed by the Dutch audiovisual group MC&F claiming ownership of the rights to the famous quiz show’s final test, “El Rosco”.

The court considers that MC&F has failed to prove the “authorship” and “originality” of the game, and therefore its claim is dismissed in its entirety.

Atresmedia’s victory in court for Pasapalabra’s ‘El Rosco’ means that Antena 3 will be able to continue to maintain the most profitable quiz show presented by Roberto Leal after the decision taken by the court.

Pasapalabra’ premiered in 2000 on Antena 3, and in 2007 it jumped to Telecinco, but the Supreme Court uphelds a judgment which obliged Telecinco to “immediately cease” both “the broadcasting, editing, production, reproduction, public communication, distribution, transformation and any and all other forms of exploitation, by itself or through third parties, of the programme Pasapalabra”., so, in 2020 it returned to the Atresmedia channel.

The judgement is not final and can be appealed before the Barcelona Provincial Court.

Intellectual Property & Litigation boutique BAYLOS advised the Spanish audiovisual group throughout this complex process with a team led by partner Pedro Merino Baylos.
