Piracy conference set for Dec. 8

Variety-sponsored summit is first of its kind

The changing state of content piracy and the latest strategies for fighting it will be the focus of the Entertainment Content Protection Summit, set for Dec. 8 at the Universal Hilton Hotel.

Presented by Variety and the Content Delivery and Storage Assn., the international content protection association, the conference is the first of its kind and will be co-chaired by Richard Atkinson, who established and headed Disney’s antipiracy operations for six years, and Devendra Misra, chief strategist at Media & Entertainment Services Alliance and adjunct professor of decision sciences at Pepperdine U.

Aimed at execs from studios, videogame companies, music and publishing, the program will address a variety of topics, from the U.S. response to cyberthreats to the experience of the music business with piracy and how to secure content architecture.

“The entertainment industry’s treasure, its content, is being plundered by pirates of all kinds,” Atkinson said. “This summit will identify the threats and provide new ways for our industry to go on the offense.”

The conference also will feature the Buried Treasure Award for excellence in antipiracy work and content protection.
