New York—Jupitermedia Corp. has sent cease and desist letters to research aggregator eMarketer, claiming infringement of its copyright and database rights in France and the U.K. Legal proceedings are expected to follow shortly in both countries, Jupitermedia said.

The action follows a lawsuit filed against eMarketer by Jupitermedia in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on May 13, alleging copyright and trademark infringement.

At issue is eMarketer’s use of Jupitermedia data in research reports, which Jupitermedia charges is unauthorized.

"eMarketer is free-riding on the efforts of companies like Jupitermedia, which devote enormous financial and other resources to creating industry-leading research and analysis," said Alan Meckler, chairman-CEO of Jupitermedia Corp., in a statement.
