Canal+ Polska Sues HBO
WARSAW, Poland, 97/10/29 (SatPoland) -- France's Canal+ has sued its U.S.
rival HBO for fraudulent competition on the Polish pay-TV market. The
company distributing Canal+ Polska filed the lawsuit with a local court in
Warsaw. Canal+ claims HBO was operating without a broadcast license, thus
circumventing rules the Polish radio and television commission has opposed
on licensed companies. Canal+ Polska has been operating since 1994 while
HBO launched its Polish-language program in June 1996.
