UCI Symposium Explores Meeting of the Law, Technology and Entertainment SATURDAY

Hot-button issues like net neutrality, digital distribution of content and other current legal affairs at the nexus of entertainment and technology in a rapidly changing digital frontier are explored at an all-day symposium presented by the UC Irvine School of Law Saturday.


Experts from the legal, technological, business, media, entertainment and government sectors will participate in the conference organized by the Entertainment Law Society at UCI. The keynote speaker is Chris Piazzola, vice president, Business & Legal Affairs, at Hulu.

Panelists will discuss the consequences of legal decisions on access to entertainment in the Internet age, and will explore questions that directly affect the way consumers access entertainment, how artists and entertainers create content, and the future landscape of entertainment and information distribution, according to organizers. Topics titles include: Remote & Cloud-Based Television Services Post-Aereo; ASCAP/BMI Consent Decrees in the Age of Digital Distribution; and The FCC's Vote on Net Neutrality: Implications, Predictions and Perspectives.
