Content Insider #519 - Content Value By Miles Weston I like free stuff as much as anyone and that's certainly true of video content. I even like the idea that someone is willing to underwrite my watching the content. Part of the reason is that I know most of the people who prepare that content for consumption are independent creatives not the "big company" - Netflix, Amazon, Sony, ABC, BBC, you name it. I'm glad TDO was told to go pound sand when he asked for a "little" ransom to give back Orange is the New Black. Hopefully others will say no to the hackers/cybercriminals so they know stealing may be fun but it's no way to make a living. It's time to protect your content...it's too valuable to pay for a second time! ...Read More »
