About this event

From its introduction, media has been very attractive to pirates, who have created many methods to steal it and use it illegally.  Our keynote speakers will provide an insight into how the pirate threat has evolved, as well as the latest technology being designed and made available to protect valuable media.

With the ever changing threats to media, new anti-piracy laws and industry bodies have been established to combat the pirates.  The speakers will examine how law enforcement agencies share best practice and tackle piracy, highlighting the efficacy of these approaches and the challenges still remaining. 

There will be keynote presentations followed by a Q & A session with the speakers, all leading experts from the Media Protection community.

The keynote topics include:

  • content protection technology
  • media intellectual property
  • anti-piracy law
  • law enforcement.
