Taylor Hackford to Headline Content Protection Summit

Taylor Hackford, president of the Directors Guild of America and Academy Award-winning director, will headline Variety and the CDSA’s Entertainment Content Protection Summit on Dec. 8, 2010

Taylor Hackford, President of the Directors Guild of America and Academy Award-winning director

Hackford will participate in a ‘Keynote Conversation,’ at the Summit, a one-day event exploring the evolving world of content piracy, offering the latest business strategies to best protect entertainment assets, spanning film, TV, video games, music and publishing.

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.

Hackford, who was nominated for an Academy Award for directing Ray, has directed and produced a number of films including Love Ranch, Proof of Life and The Devil’s Advocate, Dolores Clairborne and An Officer And A Gentleman. In 1979, Hackford won the Oscar for Best Short film for Teenage Father.
