Attendees will learn how movie, music and television content can be identified and managed across any device from anywhere at anytime. They will also hear about new approaches to managing content in HDTV, IPTV, Digital Cinema and P2P network environments. Attendees will receive policy recommendations on the “Orphan Works” issue.
