Mexico's High Court Rejects Rules Favoring Big TV Broadcasters

June 07, 2007

Mexico's Supreme Court declared parts of the nation's communications laws unconstitutional, dealing a setback to Grupo Televisa SA (TLEVICPO) and other big broadcasters by invalidating sections that helped them more than rivals.

The court rejected broadcasters' rights, gained last year, to add digital services without bidding for them, and curbed automatic television license renewals in its decision. The vote was broadcast on the court's TV channel from Mexico City.
