MPAA chief set for Content confab

Chris Dodd to deliver the Variety Conversation Keynote

MPAA topper Chris Dodd will deliver the Variety Conversation Keynote at the third annual Content Protection Summit, taking place at the Los Angeles Hilton in Universal City on Dec. 6.

The daylong event, produced by Variety and the Content Delivery and Security Assn., will explore the latest innovations and forms of deterrence to protect the creative property of film, TV, videogame, software and music companies.

“As the entertainment industry accelerates toward online services and digital products, we are experiencing a ‘perfect storm’ of threats to our business,” said Alex Kochis, the conference’s chair.

As chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Assn. of America, Dodd is charged with advocating for the film, home entertainment and TV industries around the world.

“With technology advancements and the development of an ever-growing number of platforms for viewing motion pictures and TV shows, it is more important than ever to make sure important industries, government and consumers work together to ensure the Internet works for everyone,” Dodd said.
