MPAA Chief to Keynote CPS 2012
The Third Annual Content Protection Summit (CPS), produced by Variety and the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), today announced that Senator Chris Dodd, Chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) will be featured in an exclusive Variety Conversation Keynote.
âWith technology advancements and the development of an ever growing number of platforms for viewing motion pictures and TV shows, it is more important than ever to make sure important industries, government and consumers work together to ensure the Internet works for everyone,â Senator Dodd said. âBoth the creative and technology communities are inextricably linked as we work to bring consumers the digital environment they want and both are essential to the economic well-being of our country.â
The event is one of the highlights of a day-long, deep dive into the latest innovations, findings and effective forms of deterrence in the protection of the creative products of leading movie, game, music and software companies. The event, themed “Innovation and Insights in Content Security,” is once again being held at the Los Angeles Hilton Hotel in Universal City on December 6.
âCPS is the official gathering of executives from across entertainment, focusing on the opportunities, and remarkable innovations in entertainment content protection,” said Alex Kochis, CPS Conference Chair. “As the entertainment industry accelerates toward online services and digital products, we are experiencing a âperfect stormâ of threats to our business. Yet it is also a time of vast opportunity, disruptive business models, and remarkable innovation. This conference has always kept the industryâs leading practitioners on the cutting edge of the most effective best practices and engineered solutions and we are especially proud this year to have Senator Dodd join our industry discussion.”
Senator Dodd is charged with advocating for the film, home entertainment and television industries around the world. The MPAA represents one of the most creative, productive and powerful industries in America – one that supports 2.1 million creators and makers in every state and particularly in California.
