Creativity and Copyright: A Conversation With MPAA Chairman and CEO Chris Dodd

We often discuss the American Idea in terms of economic opportunity, human rights, and our responsibility abroad. Creativity and innovation are critical drivers of the American economy and arguments for the American Dream, and they’ve been recognized as such since copyright was enshrined in the Constitution. But the rise of digital media—and with it, new norms about content consumption and content theft—pose new challenges to the creative economy, and raise key issues about the future of the internet and international trade.

Join us for a conversation with former Senator and Chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America Chris Dodd about the future of the creative industries and the relationship between technology and intellectual property in a global and rapidly-evolving marketplace.

Chris Dodd, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Motion Picture Association of America, Inc. and former Democratic senator from Connecticut
