Live sports content continues to be the most desirable for pirates to steal. Identifying infringing use is critical, both because the programming itself is valuable and because sports matches only hold their value while the event is in progress. Furthermore, sports leagues and video distributors are held to strict exclusivity terms, and as soon as a match gets out in the wild, those terms are breached.
Watch the session to learn:
- Who the responsibility for protecting valuable sports content lies with;
- What holes in the distribution chain pirates exploit to steal the content;
- What the financial consequences of piracy are and what can be done to measure and mitigate them.
Most importantly, John and Andrew talk about the concrete steps that companies can take to assess the effectiveness of security measures that are currently in place and what it takes to implement any missing components to ensure the valuable live sports content is fully protected end-to-end and piracy is disrupted in real time before content theft has had a big impact on the bottom line of content owners, rights holders and platform operators.
