CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico  — Jessica Pena, Pink Visual’s general counsel, is moderating a panel this week at the Entertainment,Sports and Intellectual Property Law Conference in Cabo San Lucas.

The panel, titled “Piracy Stripped Down: How the Adult Industry is Putting Copyright Infringement to Bed,” will discuss unique challenges the adult entertainment industry faces in combating piracy and the potential for collaboration between adult and mainstream entertainment entities in crafting effective antipiracy strategies.

The panel will address a range of intellectual property-related issues, including the scope of the immunity offered to Internet service providers under 47 U.S.C. §230; 17 U.S.C. §512(i)(b), which covers the conditions for eligibility for safe harbor under the DMCA; the ins and outs of end-user litigation; and various intellectual property issues pertaining to the creation and operation of .XXX as a top-level domain.

The panelists for the session include Gianni Servodidio, a partner at Jenner & Block; Daliah Saper of Saper Law Offices; and M. Keith Lipscomb, name partner at Lipscomb, Eisenberg and Baker. All of the panelists have worked with mainstream and adult intellectual property issues, as well as social media law.

“In some ways, the mainstream entertainment space is way ahead of the adult sector in terms of how it fights piracy,” Pena said. “Having said that, there are some interesting antipiracy approaches that adult rights-holders are taking, so my goal is to encourage the minds from both sectors to come together and share ideas that will create even more effective strategies.”
