Porn chan­nel to ap­peal rul­ing

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

AN AP­PLI­CA­TION for leave to ap­peal against a court rul­ing on the li­cens­ing of three porn pay-chan­nels will be heard in the Western Cape High Court next month. The ap­pli­ca­tion by On Dig­i­tal Me­dia (ODM) will be heard by Judge Lee Boza­lek. Ear­lier this month, Judge Boza­lek or­dered the In­de­pen­dent Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Au­thor­ity of SA (Icasa) to re­view its decision taken last year to li­cense ODM’s porn chan­nels. ODM (op­er­at­ing as Top TV and later StarSat) was granted three li­cences to broad­cast Play­boy TV, De­sire TV and Brazzers, sub­ject to con­di­tions. Icasa’s is­su­ing of the li­cences was chal­lenged by the Jus­tice Al­liance of SA, Doc­tors for Life, and Cause for Jus­tice, who ar­gued that Icasa erred in mak­ing its decision. – Sapa
