MTV Turkish Distributor MCD Files Counterclaim in Contract Case

Sept. 17 (Bloomberg) -- Multi Channel Developers Inc., a Turkish television distribution company that is being sued by Viacom Inc.’s MTV Networks, said it filed a counterclaim against Viacom in London.

Paul Renney, MCD’s U.K. lawyer, said the company filed a defense and counterclaim to the Viacom suit at the High Court in London on Sept. 15.

MTV claims in two lawsuits that MCD reneged on an agreement to pay for MTV and Nickelodeon content. MTV is seeking unspecified damages for misuse of its programming and a court order blocking the channels from being aired.

“MCD considers that both claims are incorrect and the agreement with respect to both channels was properly renewed,” Renney, a lawyer at Keystone Law, said in a telephone interview.

The cases are: MTV Networks -and- MCD, HC 10C02362 and HC 10C2363.
