Jeanette Hofmann @ Quo Vadis
On the 24th of April, our director Prof. Dr. Jeanette Hofmann is attending the “Quo Vadis” developers conference for computer games. She is participating in the panel “illegal fans – is the gaming and media industry in a trust crisis?” Jeanette Hofmann is discussing with various stakeholders on the following topic:
The trust of customers, especially of gamers, seems to be broken. That is mostly due to digital rights management approaches that leave them with a feeling of harassment. Problems of copyright seem to be the focus of the industry: Activation measures, online passes and a continuous focus on monetization. On the other hand, there is a major lack of trust on the publishers side. The apparant lack of morale and the many illegal copies threaten the business models and the industry itself. The obvious question is: how can we solve this conflict?
