Brands need to be smart to deploy big data analytics


Mumbai, 14 March 2014: Ratings may not always be perfect, but brands need to use them smartly. This is what emerged from a lively panel discussion on “Measurement Miasma, TVTs, Readerships, Clicks and Such: The Great Love/Hate Epic” at the FICCI FRAMES 2014 convention that concluded here today.

The panellists comprised Mr Sanjay Tripathy, Sr Executive VP, HDFC Life; Mr Prashant Panday, Executive Director & CEO, ENIL; Mr Partho Dasgupta, CEO, Broadcast Audience Research Council; and Ms Punitha Arumugam, Director, Agency Business, Google India. The session was anchored by Mr Paritosh Joshi, Principal, Provocateur Advocacy.

The discussions commenced with an observation by Mr Joshi that media owners do not like measurement. Mr Panday qualified that by saying that media owners like measurement, but they like it to be credible. Data from different sources was often conflicting. In the case of radio in the city of Delhi, one research figure puts the number of listeners as 40 lakh, while the other puts it at 1.4 crores. Common consensus would help in building credibility.

Faced with the question of how the Internet has become the greatest threat to intellectual property in general, and is disrupting all business models of conventional content creators, Ms Arumgum differed. She explained that Google has a monetisation sharing policy with all its content creators. They monetise content in a way that is better than content providers would be able to do on their own. Information about the number of impressions and revenue generated rests with the publisher, but they are willing to look for neutral solutions for this.

Speaking about the dissatisfaction of media houses with the recent IRS figures, the panellists observed that media owners were taken by surprise because of the huge gap that existed between the last and latest research. This indicated that either the previous, or new research was wrong. IRS should communicate what new process they followed to convince media houses that their data is consistent. Data can be believed if there is a gradual change, but when the change is not gradual, it is not believable.

Another factor that is important is sample size. The size of the sample will decide the relative errors. Smaller the sample, greater the error. The community that is involved in buying and selling media inventories is not numerate and does not understand statistical phenomena. They tend to be myopic about the process of validation. They are focussed on the process but do not try to validate the data from external sources. Validation is critical.

In keeping with the times, the audience interacted with the panellists through tweets, and soon a conversation among individual audience members got underway. The session, in a way, reflected the digital environment that the world is moving into.


Experts throw light on IPR and copyright issues

Mumbai, 14 March 2014: Should the intellectual property or creative content be barred from widespread dissemination to protect the hard work of producers, or should it be freely spread around the world in a global economic era that often doesn’t have boundaries? These and similar questions were discussed at a panel discussion on “Intellectual Property, Piracy and the Creative Industries” on the third and final day of the FICCI FRAMES convention being held here.

The session, anchored by Mr Vishnu Som, Editor and Senior Anchor, NDTV, highlighted issues around intellectual property and the dynamics of its ownership in an industry that is rapidly becoming characterised by multiple content distributors over multiple delivery platforms.

Present on the panel was Dr G Raghavender, Registrar of Copyrights, Government of India. He spoke about the Copyright Amendment Act, 2012. The amendments were designed to extend copyright protection to the digital environment in harmony with the World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) Copyright Treaty and the WIPO Phonograms Treaty, 1996. The bill introduced exclusive economic rights for performance, and, for the first time, moral rights for performers.

But Mr Deepak Jacob, President and General Counsel, Star India, differed in his view about the bill. He said that it had a fundamental problem: Of the five key stakeholders that come under copyright, viz. the print , film, television, radio and animation and gaming sectors, not a single one was consulted when these amendments were proposed. They were proposed at the behest of certain vested interests, primarily authors of literary and musical works, and certain performers. The amendments have actually created an impasse in the film and television industry, where authors have become trade unions holding film and television producers and content creators to ransom by demanding exorbitant royalties.

Mr Ameet Datta, Partner, Saikrishna & Associates, felt that the statutory requirement that when government evolves policy, it will focus on multiple stakeholders, is a positive development. Yet, there was bound to be friction between the expanding numbers of stakeholders and levels of dissemination; he suggested that involuntary licensing could provide industry with seamless access to works. He also flagged up the issue about the biggest brands being advertised on pirate websites.

“The dumber you act, the less responsibility you will have,” is what the law is suggesting, said Mr Nandan Kamath of Copyright Integrity International. The laws need to take responsibility for content on networks. He felt that the issue of digital piracy is not just legal but has ripple effects into the monetisation of content. Piracy itself is not well defined, and has lots of grey areas.

Ms Annie Luo, Director, Media, Entertainment and Information Industries, World Economic Forum, discussed about her work on intellectual property in the digital context, that identified cultural differences as an element affecting how people related to the digital media.

Mr Benoit Ginisty, Director General, FIAPF, felt that it was important for producers to enjoy full contractual freedom to produce films and robust operate in a high risk financial environment.

Questions from the audience revolved around who in a team would be the “owner” of a script, how young people could be educated about piracy, and when permissions were needed to use content.
