Statement Regarding Slingshot Global Mode


Tuesday 5 August, 2014

MediaWorks TV Statement Regarding Slingshot Global Mode

MediaWorks TV understands there are serious questions about the legality of what Slingshot is advertising in television commercials for its Global Mode service.

Our advice is that Slingshot’s latest development to Global Mode means the user of Global Mode is breaching copyright, and advertising that presents it as legitimate and legal is misleading, and may also be a breach of the Fair Trading Act.

MediaWorks takes its responsibilities as a broadcaster seriously. We understand complaints may have been made to the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) and have informed Slingshot we are withdrawing these commercials until such time as the ASA has ruled on the matter.
