The Australian telecommunications company Optus has filed Federal Court proceedings seeking a declaration that its ‘TV Now’ service does not infringe copyright.  TV Now provide Optus customers with the ability to order recordings of free-to-air TV shows for later downloading and viewing on mobile phones or computers. A similar service in Singapore, provided by RecordTV, was found to not to be an infringement of copyright: RecordTV Pte Ltd v. MediaCorp TV Singapore Pte Ltd [2011] 1 SLR 830 (CA).
