LaLiga acknowledges the report published today by the World Trade Organization (WTO) in relation to the activity of the ‘beoutQ’ piracy operation and the active involvement and support that has been provided by Saudi Arabia in the past three years.
LaLiga President Javier Tebas on the WTO report: “LaLiga welcomes the WTO’s ruling which indisputably establishes Saudi Arabia’s role in one of the most sophisticated and damaging piracy operations that has ever existed. Never before have we seen one of LaLiga’s attempts to protect its intellectual property deliberately blocked by a government. If Saudi Arabia wants to be taken seriously in world sport, it simply has to play by the rules.”
