WINT advised LRT on TV licensing agreements

WINT advised the national broadcaster LRT on the content acquisition and TV licensing agreements and helped drafting balanced documents.

The challenge which the WINT IP & Technology, Media, and Telecommunications team gladly accepted was to anticipate the array of legal scenarios which can arise in the process of the TV content acquisition. Additionally, the possible clash between the collectively and individually managed rights raised substantial concerns. However, we believe that our knowledge of the industry and long work with the collective management organizations came to hand – we were in the best position to give an advice not only from the legal but also from a practical position. This allowed to draft balanced license agreements which won’t be difficult to negotiate.

Partner Andrius Iskauskas and associate Maciej Mikelevic coordinated the project and advised the client.

The TV shows you watch on LRT might be acquired under the agreements WINT helped to draft.
