contention which is urged on behalf of the plaintiff (who is the same in all the threesuits) is that when Board of Control for Cricket in India (hereinafter referred to as
“BCCI”)
organizes cricket matches, then, any and every information pertaining tosuch cricket matches including the right to create and broadcast Short MessageServices (SMSs) based on the said information emanating from the cricket match;and which value added services are being provided by the defendants in the suits;is the exclusive right/property of the plaintiff and therefore the engaging by thedefendant in such activities for commercial benefit is illegal. The plaintiff claimsexclusive rights of providing such value added services through SMSs on the basisof the agreement dated 10.08.2012 entered into between it and the BCCI, andwhich agreement gives exclusivity to the plaintiff qua such information and rights.(ii) The counsel appearing for the defendants have contrarily argued thatthe plaintiff has no legal right as claimed, and on this Court coming to such afinding that the plaintiff has no such legal right then, the suits themselves bedismissed under Order XII Rule 6 of Code of Civil Procedure (CPC) on theundisputed position so emanating i.e once no legal right exists, the same cannot beenforced, no reliefs as prayed by the plaintiff can be granted, and the suits hencemust stand dismissed.
