And I love the accompanying graphic: Warnerâ€™s Digital Watchdog Widens War on Pirates
Hollywood studios spend millions every year trying to get people to watch their movies. At Warner Brothers Entertainment, Darcy Antonellis is trying to get them to stop watching â€” illegally, that is.
Ms. Antonellis oversees the studioâ€™s growing worldwide antipiracy efforts as Hollywoodâ€™s attention shifts from bootleg DVDs made in China to the problem of copyrighted television and movie clips showing up on sites like YouTube and MySpace.
While producers and celebrities garner most of the attention in Hollywood, technology executives like Ms. Antonellis are at the forefront of the industry as they try to protect the studioâ€™s control over its content.
“Forefront?” I would characterize it more as “heel dragging,” or worse!
