Broadband TV News, 27 Apr 2010, Julian Clover: "BBC channels have been removed from the online streaming service Zattoo after legal threats from the corporation. Since its UK launch in December 2007 the Swiss-based service has claimed that the retransmission of the BBC and other channels is permissible under the UK Copyright Act. ... A spokesman for Zattoo confirmed to Broadband TV News that the channels, including BBC One, BBC Two and BBC News, had been taken down at the request of the BBC. ... With the BBC removed, Zattoo is still left with ITV, Channel 4, Five, S4C, Al Jazeera, Bloomberg and Deutsche Welle amongst others." -- Zattoo is available Denmark, France, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, and the UK. Why couldn't (except in the UK) BBC World News be available via Zattoo?
