Sony Pictures Forms Digital Policy Group

Sony Pictures Entertainment (SPE) has formed the Digital Policy Group, an organization designed to address the challenges and opportunities arising with the digital distribution of entertainment products.

The Digital Policy Group will develop and implement policies that promote the protection of SPE content by transitioning to secure digital formats, delivery systems and networked devices. It will review new technologies that secure digital formats and distribution, represent SPE's position in cross-industry negotiations, legislative and regulatory matters and partner with other Sony companies to advance a secure infrastructure.

Beth Berke, chief administrative officer and executive vice president of Sony Pictures, will head up the project.
