About the Event
Each day of this two-day event has six segments over three hours.
Day 1 focuses on recognizing piracy and going on the offensive against it. Experts explain the many forms of piracy and why piracy is a moving target in the rapidly changing media and entertainment industry. We learn about the business and financial impact of piracy. Executives of Rogers Communications, BBC Studios, beIN Media, and a legal expert from a major Hollywood studio tell how they anticipate and respond to piracy. Learn how piracy investigations work, with a case study about a pirate service that reached 40 million consumers before it was shut down. Hear how ad-supported piracy impacts brand safety and what can be done about it.
Day 2 zeroes in on vulnerabilities, setting up defensive barriers against attacks and harnessing the power of the community to fight it. Learn how network operators can secure their services from origin to the network edge. You’ll see how pirates hack OTT services, where the DRM and Token system fail, and how to secure your content and thwart the hackers. Speaking from his experience of having blocked thousands of geo-pirates, the Architect of South Africa’s MultiChoice explains the impact that pirate activity can have on an operator’s ability to serve its subscribers. Learn techniques for protecting, detecting, and enforcing security policies from content creation to the viewer experience.
Day 2’s community focus explains how rights owners, distributors, and technologists can collaborate to protect our industry. AVIA, IBCAP and Nordic Content Protection executives tell us how they catch pirates, shut them down by court order, and influence regulators.
It’s a golden opportunity to learn from the people on the front lines waging the offensive battle against pirates and defending service infrastructure from hackers.
Video piracy is a multi-billion-dollar industry that profits from the theft of valuable content and services, service delivery infrastructure, software and apps, advertising, and from “the theft of you;” using various business models. Piracy undermines the ability of creative professionals, content providers, rights-holders, service providers, and others to sustain their businesses. It puts at risk their ability to provide the high-quality, professionally produced content consumers demand.
