TGS Baltic has successfully defended the interests of TV Play at the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania against the Radio and Television Commission of Lithuania in a dispute involving the "must carry" obligation under Lithuanian law.

After five years of litigation, the Court has ruled that the Commission, while determining a question of exemption, must take into account if the obligation would be proportional to the service provider. In what TGS Baltic describes as "this unprecedented case," the Court emphasized the obligation of a regulatory authority to apply EU law directly even if the national law does not provide such an obligation.

TGS Baltic's team led by Partner Lina Daruliene, Senior Associate Indre Barauskiene, and Associate Rugile Gediminskaite.
