New York Court Dismisses NDTV's Lawsuit against Nielsen
Mar 11 13
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.

Nielsen Files Petition to Dismiss New Delhi Television's Lawsuit
Nov 12 12
The New York Supreme Court has received a petition from Nielsen that seeks the dismissal of New Delhi Television's lawsuit over corruption in television ratings system in India. The company states in the petition that the case belongs to India and not New York. The dispute presented here concerns the quality of a TV ratings data subscription service that plaintiff NDTV receives in India from TAM Media Research Private Limited, pursuant to an agreement executed between the companies in India. In the petition, NDTV contends that in 1998, NDTV entered into a subscription agreement to purchase TAM's TV ratings data. For the next 14 years, NDTV has received this subscription service from TAM. Although NDTV claims that it began to question the accuracy of TAM's TV ratings data as early as 2001 and had actual notice that TAM's TV ratings data were flawed by 2004 at the latest, NDTV has never pursued any action against TAM to remedy its complaints. "Now, at least eight years after NDTV determined that TAM's TV ratings data are 'not reliable', it sues four separate Nielsen entities-none of which is a joint venture partner in TAM or has ever executed an agreement with NDTV regarding TAM's subscription service-in this Court, asserting a grab bag of irrational and defective claims apparently under New York state law. According to NDTV, these Nielsen companies should be held liable under contract and tort law based on meetings NDTV had with a few Nielsen representatives in 2012-in India-concerning NDTV's allegations about TAM's TV ratings data,", the petition said. Nielsen argues that NDTV has failed to name a necessary party to this dispute-TAM. NDTV's right to receive the TV ratings data subscription comes from its agreement with TAM. "In the amended complaint, NDTV viciously attacks TAM's reputation and seeks damages because TAM's TV ratings data are not reliable and tainted by widespread fraud and corruption." TAM has a right to defend against such attacks, and NDTV should not be allowed to suppress that right by bringing a lawsuit in another country, where TAM has no contacts".
