That's pretty sucky, and puzzling.  That's something I usually check with these contests, along with who owns the work once it's entered.  Looks like the prize winning entries are definitely owned by Nielsen, not sure about all the other ones.

Well that's damned UN-generous of them. What's the deal with this - is it cloaked in the trappings of a contest but really just a free labour pool for a client engagement? Or better, creating a new set of components that they'll trot out on every engagement an charge bug bucks for (a la Big Five aka "cut-and-paste" consultancies)?

Guys, I think you are missing the larger picture here: you can win
wearable technology measurement devices.
I, for one, am always confused as to the level of technology around
me.
Even the chance of owning such a convenient, wearable device by far
outweighs any drawbacks of working hard for no compensation on
something to which I forfeit all rights.

Is it like a geiger counter that starts chirping when you get close to
an iPad 3 or one of the mythical phones that supports Google Wallet?

btw, there is some interesting data in the Nielsen spreadsheets, but I
can't tell you what.

Those devices sound great on paper, but I've heard that the better
they are, the more they interfere with themselves.

Are we talking about hardware or wetware now?

You found those numbers "interesting"? My condolences. ;-) I thought
it was a dead waste of the effort of reading and accepting the terms
of use myself.
