The COVID Lock-down and Piracy – What have we Learnt?

Whilst we’re still in the midst of lockdowns, and in some cases, re-entering them – what does that mean for piracy, and in particular piracy of live broadcasts?  While sports were on hiatus, did pirates turn their attention elsewhere and does it change our approach going forward?

Pascal Metral, VP Legal Affairs, NAGRA

Avigail Gutman, VP Security and Intelligence Operations, Synamedia

Consumer Messaging that Makes a Difference

In this panel, we discuss consumer messaging initiatives that have been undertaken across the region and look at the impact of them – what works, and what doesn’t – and why not? Is there one message that is more persuasive than others, or do we need to tailor the message for each market? 

Panellists:

Monday Gonzalez, Director, Content Management Corporate Communications, Group Director for Content, Globe Telecom

Juan Jose Rotger, Global Content Protection Manager, LaLiga

Matt Cheetham, Head of Business Affairs Asia Pacific, The Premier League

16:50

Advertising – Funding the Illicit IPTV Ecosystem

Ad misplacement on piracy websites damages the reputation of brands as well as provides the primary source of illicit revenue for piracy website operators. The APAC ecosystem for illicit services looks substantially different to the US and EMEA, with consumers more likely to opt for free advertising funded Live Streaming websites and apps rather than subscription models.  What does that mean for the funding models of these piracy services , and what does it mean for brands advertising?  Can we keep legitimate advertising from illegitimate services?

Peter Szyszko, CEO, White Bullet

With Neil Gane, General Manager, AVIA Coalition Against Piracy (CAP)

Perspectives from the Government and Private Sector

Why does the supply and demand for piracy continue unabated in some markets whilst it is disrupted and reduced in others? What effective strategies can be put in place to disrupt and curb egregious levels of online piracy. Are copyright protection and anti-piracy mechanisms future ready?

Technology – First the Problem, Now the Solution?

With the advent of streaming and IP delivery of content, piracy entered a new age.  While technology clearly enabled piracy, are we now seeing the tech world providing the solutions to the problem.  What initiatives are underway that will really make a difference and how optimistic are we that advances in technology can safeguard the future of our industry?

Foul Play – Site Blocking for Live Sports

Website Blocking approaches are different for various industries – In this session, we look at what site blocking means for the live sports industry and analyse the importance of tailoring the approach.  Is it targeting the same targets? Is it implemented the same way? Is one way more effective than others?  Is it possible to achieve the best version everywhere where site blocking is currently underway?

Shifting Goal Posts – Is there Meaningful Engagement with the Tech Sector?

When it comes to the  technology and content industries there’s inevitably a discussion about the importance of working together to enhance anti-piracy approaches, techniques and technologies – but it often feels the goal posts are being moved away from the content industry.  Can the collaboration ever find an intersection that will satisfy everyone?  Will convergence of the two parties get us there, or are the issues too deeply entrenched that meaningful engagement is dictated by government positions?

Panellists

Cameron Andrews, Legal Director Anti-Piracy, beIN MEDIA GROUP

Peter Daly, Head of Content Protection & LEA Liaison, Foxtel Australia
