The Convergence of Traditional and Internet TV

A session at SXSW Interactive 2011

  • Michael Petricone

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

12:30pm to 1:30pm (CST)

With Google TV and other over-the-top (OTT) services hitting the market, service providers (cable and satellite) and many broadcasters are expressing concern over cord-cutting and other issues at the intersection of television and the Internet. This session will look at the legal and business issues surrounding OTT services, including the protection of the broadcasters' content and advertising, as well as the issues surrounding ivi TV, the Seattle-based company that is being sued by a group of broadcasters who are seeking to stop it from retransmitting their over-the-air content. How should the courts and policy-makers act or not act to ensure the right balance between content protection and innovation at the intersection of television and the Internet?
