The State of Piracy Summit

An overview of Piracy across the APAC region, what activities and initiatives are currently underway as well as a look at the progress that has been made this year, despite the restrictions put in place by the current pandemic.

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

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?

Panellists:

Steve Salway, Content Protection Manager, beIN Media Group

Pascal Metral, VP Legal Affairs, NAGRA

Avigail Gutman, VP Security and Intelligence Operations, Synamedia

With Aaron Herps, Operations Manager, AVIA Coalition Against Piracy (CAP)

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 & Creative Services, Globe Telecom

Juan Jose Rotger, Global Content Protection Manager, La Liga

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

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

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 ISD/Applications looks substantially different to the US and EMEA, with consumers more likely to opt for free versions of Live Streaming apps.  What does that mean for the funding models of these Apps, 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)

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?

Panellists:

Diane Hammer, Head of Business & Legal Affairs, Content and Brand Protection, BBC Studios

Teodoro C. Pascua, Deputy Director General, Intellectual Property Office (IPO), Philippines

Dave Lowe, Head of IP Enforcement Capacity Building, Intellectual Property Office (IPO), UK

Yew Kuin Cheah, Principal Counsel, The Walt Disney Company

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

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?

Panellists:

Nadine Patry, Director Security Products & Solutions Marketing, Viaccess-Orca

Senior representative, Google

An overview of sports piracy across the APAC region, what activities and initiatives are currently underway as well as a look at the progress that has been made this year, despite the restrictions put in place by the current pandemic.

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? 

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?

An overview of what has been done in the APAC region, where we see the source ‘hot spots’ and how we can improve the collaboration with our European and North American counterparts.
