Piracy for the People: User-Friendly Technologies Enable “Mass-Market” Piracy of Video—and Revenue Losses for CSPs
A Light Reading Webinar

Fixed and mobile communications service providers (CSPs) are increasingly looking to video for revenue growth, by licensing or creating exclusive video content for distribution to subscribers. The proliferation of certain easy-to-use, inexpensive technologies has made piracy of live TV streams and on-demand video accessible to a "mass-market" of non-technical subscribers. Sandvine’s studies of network data show that the problem can easily become worth billions of dollars to a CSP. To avoid massive revenue loss, CSPs need tools to identify and quantify the problem, then take action to address it. During the webinar, Sandvine will discuss the results of its studies in the area as well as some of the network elements necessary to begin stemming revenue losses.
