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.
