Ari Emanuel, one of the biggest names in the entertainment industry isn’t keen on any new tech that enables the dreaded “P” word (piracy). Here are highlights from his session at the D10 Conference with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher.

    Does anyone pirate ads?
    Hollywood’s least-common-denominator are advertisements for themselves. Hollywood, your ‘product’ is ads, you should love people looking at them. To paraphrase McCluhan the medium is an ad. Figure it out.

    25m for marketing of a movie! cut that out, cut out the middle man (this idiot) and you will improve your product and cost structure

    watched this and the Apples S.Cook on patents yesterday .. (at a desk now (after a Shipwreck Weekend visit – those ‘mudslides’ are so smooth) so I’ll add bits) .. I think the site has like 90+ segments to watch / and the weekend may not be over yet … would I pay 99cents for that 22min or some other penny amount / or a $1.99 for the whole convention ?? I guess it matters how much my knowing what went on matters to my lifestyle and business bottom line

    Ari seems hyped (perturbed) at how to navigate the new world order .. I understand / I swear the faux crash landing of the spaceship (now housed in Area51) has the apocalypse right on schedule / them clever aliens knew how the semiconductor-chip reverse engineered would affect our world (I wonder which lord and how much is wagered on the calendar square of the BigBlowOut)
    (is my sci-fi training showing :-)

    back to the real world .. those two segments has my interest over the past few years .. I don’t have a clue how to put the advanced engineered world in proper play .. I fear it will take a century (sorry kids – it happens)

    I’ve said before will say again – this dual nova world of stocks & bonds – this competition play to survive – this cashAir we all need …. I think its time for a new plan; a revelation revolution of how it would work best // the reverse idea of our milleniums “do or die”

    My new www stuck on you moment is going viral (=pirated) – Gotye’s song “someone I used to know” – so those 2 segments hit in my last week of demand desires in this free world brought to us by ?? commercials; faux money; love; ?;
    (you need one of those privateclub FB accounts to get the full picture) .. but for those who refuse to be caught by a fishhook – there are a number of versions on the www now – dog & cat version, another w/MIDI dancing notes on the sheet staff
