NMC calls for review of beIN's legal status

The UAE's National Media Council has called for the legal status of beIN Sports to be reviewed.

It's due to the channel's repeated involvement in politics, especially during football's 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

The NMC commended the measures taken by Saudi Arabia to fight piracy and intellectual property theft carried out by an entity named beoutQ.

According to the national news agency WAM, the media council also condemned Qatar's attempt to drag the Saudi Arabia into the issue instead of protecting its sports channel against piracy.
