New York Court Dismisses NDTV's Lawsuit against Nielsen

The Supreme Court of New York has dismissed New Delhi Television Ltd.'s suit against Nielsen, Kantar and WPP on jurisdiction grounds, on the basis that there were "minimal contacts" with New York. In its suit, NDTV had claimed that Nielsen and Kantar's joint venture company, TAM India, has been manipulating television viewership data and ratings to favour some television channels. The court felt that India would be a more convenient forum than the US.

New Delhi Television Ltd. Sues The Nielsen Co. and KMR Group Limited for Tampering Viewership Data

New Delhi Television Ltd. has sued The Nielsen Co. and its partner KMR Group Limited in a New York court for tampering with TV viewership data to favour broadcasters who allegedly bribed executives in its Indian JV, TAM India. In an unprecedented action, the Indian television producer and broadcaster, NDTV, which owns the news channels NDTV 24x7 and NDTV India, has filed a suit in the New York State Supreme Court seeking damages of around $1.4 billion for negligence and fraud and hundreds of millions more for interference and breach of fiduciary duty. Advertisers and media agencies depend on TAM data - the only available measurement for TV viewership-to negotiate ad rates. In its 194-page lawsuit, NDTV claims that it had confronted Nielsen with evidence of data manipulation, including taped meetings with TAM India employees, which showed that they were willing to tamper data for bribes. Nielsen, according to NDTV, had admitted in meetings and through emails that its data was indeed being manipulated and that it was willing to address the issue by July 1, 2012. That Nielsen continued to publish these ratings despite repeated demands to stop distribution of TAM TV ratings until the sample size was increased and a proper security mechanism was put in place. The broadcaster has charged Nielsen and Kantar with operating worldwide through a deliberately complex web of subsidiaries and joint ventures, creating, at least in India, a monopoly and abusing the power of that monopoly.
