    Now this was the most interesting article I've read all day! Although you say Hungary's Sports Act is not as in-depth as other EU countries, it definitely contains a lot more provisions than the Kenyan Sports Act does. We really have no regulations on broadcasting rights for sports, and this article has provided a good break-down of what ought to be in place.
    Hopefully Kenya shall get to this level in the near future.
