In October 2011, online ad network Komli Media had inked a deal with Jivox to become the exclusive licensee of Jivox’s ad platform in the Asia Pacific region and acquire existing publishers and customers of Jivox in India. However, just a month later, Jivox opened up its interactive video platform for licensing, allowing digital content publishers and owners in the Asia Pacific region to make use of Jivox’s video advertising platform to monetize their video content.
