      And Antena 3 is actually paying ITV Studios for the rights…Mediaset is probably going to regret what they tried to do…

        The thing is, I still think the format is so different as to be counted as a complete separate thing legally.

          That maybe so, but two things. If the Alphabet Game hadn’t existed, neither would have P. Therefore, isn’t it right that the originators of the original idea should profit? Second, when you licence an idea, often there is a clause in there that says that anything you create is automatically subsumed into the original format. (For instance, I think Mole games devised by one country are become part of the ‘format bible’ for any other countries to use, should they wish.) This stops people from changing 20% and then claiming it’s an original idea. Furthermore, it means the two countries can share their knowledge amicably.
