Hurt Locker Producer Nicholas Chartier to Keynote Content Protection Summit, Dec. 8      

“Hurt Locker” producer Nicholas Chartier is no stranger to controversy, 
so expect him to make news and stir up debate during his keynote address
 at the 2nd Annual Content Protection Summit, Dec., 8, 2011 at the 
Hilton Los Angeles Hotel in Universal City, CA. The event, 
co-produced by Variety magazine and CDSA, the international content 
security association, is the annual meeting for content executives 
involved in the fight against the piracy of movies, games and 

Chartier is one of the most vocal members of Hollywood’s creative community about the implications of Internet piracy on the film 
community. He made headlines last year after announcing that his 
company, Voltage Pictures, had declared war on film pirates and was 
planning to sue thousands of people who illegally downloaded his Academy
 Awardwinning picture on the popular file-sharing site BitTorrent.      

Chartier had previously made headlines when he was banned from the 2009 
Oscars after he e-mailed members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts 
and Sciences to solicit votes for his company’s movie. He apologized 
later for violating the rules. In addition to “Hurt Locker,” which 
garnered six Academy Awards including “Best Picture,” he has been 
involved in the financing, production and sales of a diverse range of 
films for the past 10 years.      

Chartier’s keynote is part of a one-day, in-depth, expert conference  
devoted to best practices and case studies of successful strategies used to combat the theft of intellectual property in media and 
entertainment.The event will provide exclusive insights into today’s 
burgeoning cyber-threat, updates on piracy in China and other Asian 
markets, as well as presentations on new technologies that are proven 
piracy deterrents.      

The Content Protection Summit has garnered the support of a wide range 
of industry associations including: AFTRA, BMI, CEA, ISSA, and 
NATPE. Technology providers and companies that will showcase their 
latest anti-piracy and content protection solutions and strategies 
include: Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Deluxe, Irdeto, Akamai, Civolution,
