Avaaz is filing legal action against 21s Century Fox. The media company wants to purchase Sky. However, Avaaz is saying that this may not be the best thing to happen. Avaaz said that the ruling that the purchase can go ahead was fatally flawed in many areas. They say that the judge should revisit the ruling in order to determine whether Fox, under Rupert Murdoch, can really purchase the part of Sky that it does not yet own and what Avaaz knows.
Ofcom ruled that the deal can go ahead. However, Avaaz is saying that we need to take another look at the ties between Murdoch and Fox and Ofcom. In addition, they say that the basis for the ruling is outdated and does not pass legal muster anymore. In addition, they say that Ofcom relied too much on the information that they received during meetings with representatives of Fox. Also, they say that another look needs to be taken into the broadcasting standards that Fox has.
