Indecopi declared the complaint founded by the Pataclau Cultural Association against Movistar, after the Movistar Play platform placed the 55 chapters of the Peruvian series “Pataclaun” in its catalog, without respecting the respective property rights (copyright). This abuse was denounced before the entity by the producer and director July Naters.
The problem began in 2019, when the streaming platform placed more than 50 episodes of the popular show created by Naters in its catalog, who denounced the fact and received a positive response in May 2021.

Subsequently, after Telefónica’s appeals at the beginning of June, the National Consumer Protection Authority made the effective sanction: a payment of 27,000 dollars for not respecting the patrimonial rights.
The agreement between “Pataclaun” and Latin Frequency
Initially, Telefónica tried to appeal saying that “Pataclaun” had transferred the rights to any type of broadcast of the series to Latin Frequency. However, according to Indecopi, the Pataclaun Cultural Association had agreed with the television network where its channel could broadcast it, but without permission to sell or assign its rights to third parties.

In addition, at the beginning “Pataclaun” had requested a payment of 693,000 dollars for the retransmission of the show on the three Movistar platforms, but as we have already specified here, the amount was set at the lower sum of 27,000 dollars.
“Pataclaun” premiered on November 30, 1997 and closed its broadcast on December 19, 1999. To date, it is one of the most successful and remembered Peruvian series by the public.
