Anti-Piracy & Content Protection Summit - Los Angeles

Freedom of expression is key to our businesses, and any actions pursued on the enforcement side are taken with that in mind.

Legal IQ, a division of IQPC, announces the Anti-Piracy and Content Protection Summit, taking place June 25 to 27, 2012 in Los Angeles, CA. The summit gathers industry leaders to forge collaborations, leverage best practices and develop effective methods and strategies to minimize the impact of piracy.

Having identified a very real need of content providers to collaborate effectively across industries and share strategies on how to protect content and intellectual property (IP), this year’s West Coast Anti-Piracy & Content Protection Summit focuses on the Film, TV, Music, Software and Gaming industries.

Recent legislative efforts to address copyright infringement and online piracy have brought attention to the challenges that arise in trying to balance IP protection with free speech, innovation and the online economy. In a recent interview, David Kaplan of Warner Bros. Entertainment detailed the approach Warner Bros. takes. “Freedom of expression is key to our businesses, and any actions pursued on the enforcement side are taken with that in mind,” said Kaplan. He goes on to detail what their top priorities are in the content protection battle, and the latest technologies they use in the interview, available in full here.

International case studies and cutting edge data will give a clear picture of how consumers access and use content in Asia, Russia and Brazil. Attendees will learn who their allies are, and what policies are in place to protect their Intellectual Property.

The Anti-Piracy and Content Protection Summit features confirmed speakers from global leaders in IP protection including NBC Universal, Rosetta Stone, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Warner Bros, Paramount, Lionsgate, Mark Monitor and more.
