Argentina's Supreme Court has unanimously upheld the injunction issued by federal Judge Edmundo Carbone against Media Law regarding Article 161 that requires companies to divest their radio and television stations within a year, according to an article in the Buenos Aires Herald.

Judge Carbone's order previously had been affirmed by the Second Division of the Federal Civil and Commercial Chamber.  The injunction is being challenged by the Clarin Group, publisher of the country's largest newspaper, Clarin, whose circulation tops 330,000 and boasts a 44 percent market share in Buenos Aires.

The Supreme Court pressed Judge Carbone to set a deadline for the injunction to expire and urged him to resolve the main dispute within two years.
