Digital channels for distribution create new opportunities for artists and content owners, but also new challenges in enforcing copyright and reducing piracy. How much of an impact does piracy have on the creative industries?  Have past efforts to curb piracy been effective?  This panel discussion will highlight findings from recent empirical research analyzing the impact of piracy on sales of copyrighted products and quantifying the effectiveness of both policy-based and market-based strategies for fighting piracy.


Speakers confirmed for the event are:


Michael Smith, Senior Adjunct Fellow, Technology Policy Institute, and Professor of Information Systems and Marketing and the Co-Director, Initiative for Digital Entertainment Analytics, Carnegie Mellon University


Joel Waldfogel, Professor, Frederick R Kappel Chair in Applied Economics,  Carlson School of Management, University of Minnesota
