Day 1: Recognizing Piracy and Going on the Offensive

Piracy is the world’s biggest premium video service. If you are a creator, piracy is your biggest threat. If you are a distributor, it is your biggest competition. The media communications ecosystem is a critical infrastructure. It must be recognized and protected as such.
What is piracy? There’s a taxonomy for that
Theft of Services, Content, Advertising, Infrastructure, Software, and the ‘Theft of You.’ What’s real, and which are noise-level? What’s their impact on rights-holders, distributors, creatives, and the broader media industry?

The Cost of Piracy
Across broadcast, movies, premium TV programming, sports and events, brand and reputation are critical. But which has the most value and the highest priority? Piracy business models, B-to-B piracy networks, Piracy-as-a-Service. What they are and what it takes to disrupt them.

The Anti-piracy Ecosystem
