In the current Women World Championship the games are transmitted with a delay to avoid cheating. Searching if something similar will happen for the Candidates tournament I could just found the information that the games will be only be available in the official webpage.

Is it going to be any delay or any other anti-cheating measure that affects the broadcasting of the games applied in the Candidates?

It is mostly Agon protecting their commercial rights to the event.

They forbid rebroadcasting and require users / viewers to login and click agreement to a complicated piece of lawyer-speak which is unintelligible to normal people.

Being cynical I expect any delay for other organizations covering the event will come from one of their members subscribing and then playing the moves on a chessboard in front of him so somebody else can broadcast them.

There is no copyright on chess moves or games, only on commentary.

  • Thanks. For those concerned with privacy I want to add that you can login in the official webpage using a disposable email address. – A. A. Mar 11 '16 at 12:30
