A Handbook: Developing an Effective Content Protection Strategy


Over the past 18 months, the interest in watching live sports via streaming and over-the-top (OTT) platforms has exploded.

But leagues, rights holders and OTT broadcasters of high-value live sporting events only get one shot to maximize revenue with as many legitimate and paying viewers as possible.

To help protect high-value content against sophisticated pirates, it is crucial to have a digital content protection strategy in place.

In this handbook, you’ll learn:

  • The components of a comprehensive content protection tech stack including VPN detection, DRM, watermarking and user authentication.
  • Why blocking ‘dishonest’ users frees up capacity and drives additional revenue opportunities.
  • How to detect new location spoofing techniques to protect geo-restricted content.
