Gornitzky obtained a ruling in favor of YES from the High Court of Justice

The High Court of Justice accepted YES’ motion and issued a conditional order (order nisi) against the validity of an amendment to the Communications Law, which exempts certain channels, including Channels 9 (Russian), 24 (Israeli music) and 30 (Arabic), from paying transfer fees to the satellite company for their broadcast.

The legislative amendment had been accepted in 2010 and essentially absolved the said channels from paying significant fees to YES.

YES was represented by Mr. Lior Porat (Partner) and Mr. Asaf Avtuvi.
