EVENT: Fighting Audiovisual Piracy On A Global Basis

08 July 2013

An AAPA sponsored event at IBC

Saturday 14 September 2013 at 1700 to 1930

Holland Restaurant, RAI, Amsterdam

Piracy does not recognise national or regional boundaries: it is a global phenomenon requiring international action to tackle piracy effectively. Already the internet is used to facilitate and exploit piracy mechanisms, such as card sharing. Piracy moves swiftly across borders, requiring cross-border, multi-jurisdictional anti-piracy enforcement in response. As more and more content is made available online the need for globally co-ordinated anti-piracy action becomes greater.

Laws and enforcement agency resources have tended to reflect national and regional boundaries. Audiovisual anti-piracy associations have followed the same geographic pattern.

Please join us for this AAPA sponsored event chaired by Sian Jones. We will bring together regionally-based associations such as CASBAA, AAA, STOPNordic and Alianza Contra la Piratería de Televisión Paga and international enforcement agencies such as Europol to introduce a globally co-ordinated approach to fight audiovisual piracy. It will discuss how international laws and agreements can be enhanced; how international enforcement agencies can be supported by the associations and their members; and how the associations themselves can work together to address the growing global challenges.

The event will be followed by a reception, offering networking opportunities with representatives of pay TV companies, content security vendors, and enforcement bodies.
