Keynote Interview

Streaming, Sharing, Stealing

“That’s sharing!” – “That’s stealing!” – “THAT’s old man talk.” So went the exchange between Adam Driver and Ben Stiller in the comedy While We’re Young. But in their book Steaming, Sharing, Stealing: Big Data and the Future of Entertainment, authors Michael D Smith and Rahul Telang cut through the moralizing and the denial, and use entertainment analytics to show how profoundly the rules have changed. They’ve been called the gurus of the post-copyright era. And they’ll tell you what companies like Netflix and Amazon have figured out that crippled media giants haven’t.
