The federal government said it has no issues with Kantar's purchase of up to 15.45% of comScore, the Internet audience measurement company.

That came in an early termination notice issued by the Federal Trade Commission, which indicated neither it nor the Department of Justice have any antitrust issues with the deal that would prompt them to either block or condition it.

Last month, WPP announced that Kantar, the data investment management arm of the company, was buying the stake in Reston, Va.-based comScore.
