Consumer Piracy to feature at MESA Europe’s Paris event

Published March 13, 2018

Reviewing and combatting the continuing consumer online piracy problem is one of the topics coming under the spotlight at MESA Europe’s Content & Cybersecurity Forum, taking place in Paris on 21st March.

Content protection has matured and we are entering an era of consolidation. Meanwhile, new technological challenges have appeared on the horizon. In a presentation from Pascal Hetzscholdt, Director, Content Protection, Europe & Africa from 21st Century Fox, some of the questions to be addressed are; What are the current needs of rights owners in light of global piracy enforcement? What do they require from vendors? How can vendors help them prepare themselves for the future? And what’s the role of operators in all of this?

Meanwhile the pirate consumer is getting smarter and is exploiting a variety of routes to obtain unauthorised access to content. In a follow up presentation from Chris Le Maitre, Director. Operations, Operational Security of Cisco, we will hear more about the consumer’s role in continuing to drive pirate activity and learn about some steps that are being taken to counter content theft. This will include a review of how the industry is responding with a growing array of advanced technology solutions aimed at prevention, detection and takedown.

Our piracy discussion will continue with an industry panel reviewing the actions needed to tackle current day piracy and taking a look at some of the technology solutions available to help support the fight.  Joining our presenters on this panel will be Bastien Casalta, Chief Technology Officer from TMG and Jakob Kuznicki, EVP International, Govinet.

The event will take place on the morning of 21st March, at the Hôtel Westminster.
