Playa Vista — Deep fakes, streaming wars, and e-sports highlighted discussions at Loyola Law School’s 5th Annual TechTainment event.

The symposium, hosted at the school’s Playa Vista campus, focused on legal and business issues commonly found at the intersection between entertainment and technology law.  Discussions featured panelists serving as in-house counsel for some of the industries’ most successful companies, including Activision-Blizzard Inc., CBS Corporation, and the Motion Picture Association of America.

Much of the focus was placed on where technology and entertainment are headed — notably the already in-progress streaming wars expected to heat up with the launch of Disney+ and other streaming competitors later this year — and ares of law developing as a result.  The event was held in partnership with the Los Angeles Intellectual Property Law Association.
