Jupitermedia Formally Sues eMarketer


Tech media and research firm Jupitermedia has formally sued eMarketer, a meta-research firm. It has sent cease and desist letters to eMarketer claiming “inducement to breach contract and infringement of its copyright and database rights in both France and the United Kingdom.”

This latest action is in addition to legal action commenced against eMarketer in U.S. Here’s the crux of JUPM’s argument: “eMarketer claims to aggregate data from many sources, including JupiterResearch. However, eMarketer is not authorized to access JupiterResearch reports and has no license to distribute JupiterResearch data.”

Very interesting case…keep a close eye on it…
