  • LOS ANGELES, CA. – The International Quality and Productivity Center (IQPC) will hold its 8th Anti-Piracy & Content Protection Summit on June 26-28, 2017 in Los Angeles, California.  For this, it will assemble the industry to discuss best practices, develop new strategies, and investigate the most effective solutions to prevent, combat and outsmart, today’s digital pirate.

    Among the invited expert speakers is ABS-CBN AVP for Global Anti-Piracy & Content Security Elisha Lawrence who was tapped to discuss “Social Media — How to Protect Your Content in the Social Media Space”.

    The premise of the discussion is that “in 2017, pirates are only a hashtag away from offering your content online, for free.  Users are willing to pay for content, but only if it is readily accessible and at the right price.  If it’s not, a simple perusal of their social media platforms will have them enjoying your content online gratis.”

    The session under Lawrence will:

    • Lay out how to develop a global program for removing infringing content from social media;
    • Track the movement away from torrent sites and tricks to further frustrate viewers off of torrent sites;
    • Discuss how social media cam help you enforce against pirates;
    • Utilize social media “Robin Hoods” as Brand Ambassadors

    The organizer, IQPC, mentioned, “Piracy is, without a doubt, one of the greatest threats to the creative content across a range of industries – and the challenges of fighting against it are continuous. The digital landscape on which these challenges are addressed continues to change, and pirates are constantly finding new ways to breach and distribute unauthorized material, obliging our security strategies and enforcement measures to evolve in kind.”

    Aside from Lawrence representing ABS-CBN, speakers in the 3-day conference include industry experts from Roku, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Fox Entertainment Group, Motion Pictures Association of America, Turner Broadcasting System, Intel, Adobe Systems, Microsoft, ClearPlay, Ultimate Fighting Championship, to mention a few.
