05:48 EDTNLSN, TVNielsen fights over ratings in Mexico with Televisa, Azteca, WSJ reports
Nielsen Co.'s (NLSN) expansion in Mexico two years ago ha been nothing but trouble, reports the Wall Street Journal. From the start, Nielsen found out the names, addresses and telephone numbers of hundreds of families that contributed to Ibope's ratings there were stolen by an anonymous hacker and widely leaked. Mexico's TV broadcasters, Grupo Televisa (TV) and Azteca, turned the leak into an attack on the combined Nielsen Ibope. Both filed criminal and civil charges against the entity, claiming fraud among other allegations. These troubles complicates what authorities hoped would be a revolution in the Mexican TV business.Reference Link
