Key moments

Roskomnadzor is not seeking to expand its presence in the fight against piracy; instead, we support the idea of self-regulation mechanisms to work more actively, for the fight against piracy to move entirely into the self-regulation area.
Alexander Zharov
Head, Federal Service for Supervision of Communications, Information Technology, and Mass Media (Roskomnadzor)
Audio and video content piracy is indeed an international problem and every jurisdiction has to respond to it in accordance with the rule of law.
Stan McCoy
President, Managing Director, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Motion Picture Association of America
Pirates are changing their strategies all the time and we must be flexible and fast.
Trevor Albery
Vice-President, Strategy and Operations, Content Protection and Analytics (EMEA), Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc.
The music industry is rapidly developing and is the first to apply the latest mechanisms for monetization, sale and distribution of content. Mobile devices account for more than half of all sales, primarily mobile apps. The problem we need to address now is that we have to be able to block pirate mobile apps effectively.
Leonid Agronov
Head, National Federation of the Music Industry (NFMI)
Within our planning horizon, traditional linear television will remain the dominant platform among all media.
Dmitry Chernyshenko
Chief Executive Officer, Member of the Board of Directors, Gazprom-Media Holding
Piracy is not a static challenge, these pirates are great innovators and are coming up with new business models every day.
Stan McCoy
President, Managing Director, Europe, the Middle East and Africa, Motion Picture Association of America
The music industry, which at one time began fading away… has been showing growth indicative of its revival, and this is due to digital services with the subscription-based business model.
