  1. This issue has come up in Cricket – where there is a live scorecard in addition to the live footage. Typically courts have viewed the scorecard under ‘data rights’ and have disallowed contemporaneous minute-by-minute score updates, but have allowed them with a time lag (15 minutes). “newsworthy information” was allowed to be disseminated immediately. No licence was required if the information was disseminated gratuitously. That said, this case was in India and cricket is played mostly among common law countries. Chess is a different ball game altogether 🙂
