Eric Cantor to Appear at MPAA, Microsoft Creativity Conference

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) will add some bipartisan balance to the MPAA and Microsoft’s Creativity Conference on April 26, a D.C. event that will feature a keynote by former President Bill Clinton.

The event, to be held the day before the White House Correspondents Assn. dinner, is co-sponsored by Time. The orgs released a list of other participants in the event at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, including “Beasts of the Southern Wild” director Benh Zeitlin, Monumental Sports and Entertainment’s Ted Leonsis, New York Times’ Frank Bruni, Aspen Institute President Walter Isaacson and Time managing editor Richard Stengel, among others. Previously announced participants also include Harvey Weinstein and MPAA chairman Chris Dodd.

The purpose of the event is to highlight “the critical intersection between technology and the arts,” but it also comes as Dodd and other show biz trade associations acknowledge that a key component to fighting piracy will be voluntary agreements, perhaps instead of new legislation.
