The World DanceSport Federation (WDSF) holds all television and new media rights to its events. For determined European and World Championships as well as for the GrandSlams, WDSF divides them into national and international rights.
The international rights are retained by WDSF to use them as it finds appropriate. The national rights are assigned to the hosts and organisers in return for a television production to be provided subject to the terms of a contract.
In the case of the 2013 World DanceSport Championship Standard in Kiev, Ukraine, the contract was entered into between WDSF and the All Ukrainian Dance Sport Association (AUDSA).
AUDSA commissioned a company to produce the World Standard for it to be televised in the Ukraine and for an international highlights programme to be made by WDSF television partner IEC in Sports.
AUDSA commissioned another company to stream the championship live in the territory of the Ukraine.
The only video stream of the 2013 World Standard that is available internationally should be the one available here at worlddancesport.org … Provided everybody else plays by the rules!
