At the forefront of MENA
Anti-Piracy strategies:
Challenges and Solutions

17 June 2020
Anti-Piracy

Conference

Piracy may be the wrong business, but it’s certainly big business. OTT and pay-TV companies have lost around $9.1bn in revenue due to piracy and account sharing in 2019 alone.

The 2020 edition of the MENA Anti-Piracy Conference will look at the various avatars of piracy and bring media houses, the legal fraternity, technology providers, and regulatory and community stakeholders together to see how they can best collaborate to get ahead of the problem once and for all.


2020

Agenda

With a highly engaging raft of expert panels and debates, this half-day conference examines key issues such as how piracy has morphed dangerously, taking new shapes with the introduction of online services and IP delivery. Industry champions assess what’s behind the losses and what regional players can do. View full agenda here
