Panel topics include proprietary rights, the changing economic rules, and risk versus reward, featuring a variety of panelists from multiple firms and counsels, along with Casey Bloys (President of Programming, HBO). The keynote will be presented by John Cones, a renowned expert in film finance, as well as an author and lecturer working in the broad field of film finance, focusing on the legal work associated with investor-financing of independent entertainment projects and business start-ups.
