CREATIVE KEYNOTE: A Conversation with Taylor Hackford

The DGA’s top public policy priority is addressing the problem of digital theft, and as president of the DGA, Hackford is committed to protecting the intellectual property rights of the DGA’s 14,000 members on the films, television programs and other content they create. Hackford understands well what is at stake for DGA members and their colleagues throughout the entertainment industry. In 2004, he found dozens of copies of his film Ray being sold on the streets of New York the same day it was released in theaters, followed by millions of online files being swapped freely by Internet thieves. Since then, the problem has grown monumentally and Internet theft is now a problem facing all filmmakers no matter how small or large the film.

LEARNING LUNCHEON: Music…What happened from an executive that was there!

10 years after Napster (has it really been that long?), the music business is radically changed.  Music consumption is higher than ever…yet revenue from music sales is a fraction of what it used to be.  Over lunch, Larry Kenswil will share what it was like to be a top music business executive through this change…and lessons learned that could hopefully help all of us.  What did they know?  Think they knew? Had no idea?  An opportunity to learn directly from a top executive that was – and is – there.

Defense to Offense: Leveraging Piracy Consumption to MAKE Money
For years, “content protection” was mainly “defensive” in nature…tending to restrict or prevent piracy in various ways and essentially “ignore” the consumer demand.  But recent changes across technology and consumption platforms are allowing alternative approaches…some of which begin to respond to this piracy consumption and enable business models that generate real revenue.
