Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – Pink Visual announced today that the studio’s lead in-house counsel, Jessica Pena, is moderating a panel at the Entertainment, Sports and Intellectual Property Law Conference (ES/IP) in Cabo San Lucas this week.
Entitled “Piracy Stripped Down: How the Adult Industry is Putting Copyright Infringement to Bed,” the session will delve into both the unique challenges the adult entertainment industry faces in combating piracy and the potential for collaboration between adult and mainstream entertainment entities in crafting effective anti-piracy strategies.
“In some ways, the mainstream entertainment space is way ahead of the adult sector in terms of how it fights piracy,” Pena said. “Having said that, there are some interesting anti-piracy approaches that adult rights-holders are taking, so my goal is to encourage the minds from both sectors to come together and share ideas that will create even more effective strategies.”
The panelists for the session have a wealth of knowledge both in mainstream and adult intellectual property issues and social media law. They include Gianni Servodidio, Partner at Jenner & Block, New York, Daliah Saper, Principal Attorney at Saper Law Offices, and M. Keith Lipscomb, Partner at Lipscomb, Eisenberg and Baker, PL.
“I am honored to present such a knowledgeable group of panelists, and I’m confident that the presentation will be well received and insightful.
The panel will address a range of intellectual property-related issues, including the scope of the immunity offered to Internet Service Providers under 47 U.S.C. §230; 17 U.S.C. §512(i)(b), which covers the conditions for eligibility for ‘safe harbor’ under the DMCA; the ins and outs of end-user litigation and various intellectual property issues pertaining to the creation and operation of .XXX as a top-level domain.
Pena said that the panel’s presentation is designed to be “fun and even a bit sexy” in addition to providing an abundance of information.
