A federal judge last week denied TiVo’s Research & Analytics (TRA) subsidiary from making a potentially $196 million (€182.6m) claim against a rival.

TiVo wanted to sue Kantar Media and its TNS Media Research division for damages in a what was alleged to be a trade-secret misappropriation by Kantar.  The claim also argued that Kantar had stunted the growth of TiVo’s TRA by creating and marketing an infringing product.

US District Court Judge Katherine Forrest, in her Manhattan court, said that TiVo had presented no admissible evidence to support its allegation.
