PT Nonbar Pursues Payment of Broadcast Rights to World Cup from Bali Hotels

PT Nonbar – the company holding the license for exhibiting the recently completed World Cup at public venues in Bali, is questioning the validity of a letter purportedly written by the Bali chapter of the Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI-Bali) and sent to Bali’s chief of police.

As reported by the State News Agency Antara, Fredrik Billy, the lawyer of PT Nonbar, said on Friday, August 8, 2014, “we doubt reports saying that PHRi-Bali is urging hotels in Bali to ignore their financial obligations to PT Nonbar.”

As a result, Fredrik Billy has written to Bali’s chief of policePHRI-Bali, the National Broadcast Commission (KPI) in Bali, and the Department of Justice and Human Rights in Bali questioning the authenticity of the PHRI letter.

PT Nonbar claims it is due fees from hundreds of hotels in Bali who shared broadcasts of games from the World Cup between June 13 – July 14, 2014 without first paying for rebroadcast rights.

PT Nonbar has served multiple official legal warnings to many Bali hotels it accuses of illegal rebroadcasts, demanding punitive payments that are twice the official tariff. A number of hotels have replied, paying the amount demanded.

At a meeting held on July 27, 2104 and attended by hotels, Bali police, KPI Bali, and representatives of the Ministry of justice some of the government representatives in attendance suggested hotels not pay the money requested by PT Nonbar who they said lacked legal standing in the matter as the authorized agent for rebroadcast of the World Cup.

PT Nonbar claims a letter urging non-compliance to their demands was not written on PHRI’s official stationery nor did the letter bear the signature of PHRI’s chairman.

PHRI-Bali is apparently declining public comment on the case.
