It’s A ’xu Out There

OpenAP, a TV audience measurement and targeting consortium backed by Fox, Viacom and NBCUniversal, selected dataxu as its go-to DMP and data match service. Read the release. Dataxu’s OneView DMP will let OpenAP members build audience segments.

In the fall, OpenAP 2.0 will be released, which will let ad buyers activate those audiences across publishers.

Yahoo Finance has been a bright spot for Verizon’s struggling media business, which it wrote down by $4.6 billion last year.

It’s an aggressive response. A similar investigation of Chinese technology policies precipitated the current trade war between the United States and China. The French tax caught the ire of President Trump because it falls on companies with digital revenues of more than $840 million globally and $28 million in France – which is heavily weighted to Apple, Google, Facebook and Amazon. The only French company affected by the tax is Criteo. More.
