Protecting Live Sports Content – to feature at MESA Europe London Security event

Published October 17, 2017

The topic of live sports content piracy will come under the spotlight at MESA Europe’s upcoming Content Protection Summit, taking place in London on 15th November.

Sports piracy has seen dramatic growth in recent years, driven by the growth in OTT and streaming services on the one hand and the rising cost of viewing over legitimate paid for channels on the other. The sports rights owners, together with their distribution and technology partners, are however fully committed to tackling the problem and eradicating the illegal sites and operators that provide access to this content.

In this session, delegates will hear from a number of organisations who are committed to this fight and learn more about the challenges they face and some of the steps being taken to protect live sports content.

So far LaLiga from Spain and Neulion have agreed to participate in this part of the programme, with other speakers expected to be announced in the coming days.

Among the companies signed up to attend the event are APP Global, BBC Worldwide, BSkyB, Cartesian, ContentArmor, Deluxe, Dolby, IYuno Media, NexGuard, Sony DADC New Media Solutions, Take1, Universal Pictures, Vubiquity, Walt Disney and Warner.

The event will take place at One Great George Street, Westminster, London SW1P 3AA.
