[Extract] The Seven Network v News Ltd case involved litigation between the Seven Network ('Seven') and virtually every major media organisation in Australia in relation to the granting of television rights for the Australian Football League (AFL) and National Rugby League (NRL). Seven's argument was that anti-competitive behaviour during this period had led to the demise of its pay television network, C7. This case note will therefore examine the decision in regard to the application of the Trade Practices Act 1974 (Cth)(TPA) to the case, and Justice Sackville's warning about mega-litigation.
