24 Mar 2010

On 21 January 2010, the Court of Appeal (Rix LJ, Lloyd LJ and Mackay J) dismissed the appeal of British Sky Broadcasting Group plc (“Sky”) against the decision of the Competition Appeal Tribunal (“CAT”) of  29 September 2008 in which the CAT had dismissed Sky’s appeal against the Competition Commission’s and the Secretary of State’s decisions that Sky’s acquisition of a minority shareholding in ITV resulted in a substantial lessening of competition (“SLC”) and that Sky should divest itself of that shareholding to below 7.5 per cent.
