Session A – RA9 –
Reinventing Advertising
Advertising in Search, Social Media, P2P and other Web Based Services
In this session we will address the relationship of advertising and commerce in the more cutting edge media platforms of P2P, Search, and social media. A revolution in advertising and commerce is on its way, and the fully interactive and immersion based platform of social media and gateway concepts such as search are proving to be the most inherently targeted vehicles for interacting with the consumer. We are at the first stages of not only understanding how the technology is impacting the consumer, we are likewise at the first stages of what the technology looks like and how it will function. Advertising and commerce in cutting edge broadband and mobile is our future and in this session, we hope to set a baseline for future exploration.

Donald A. Jasko, Chief Executive Officer of Digital Economics, is an attorney by training. But he has, for the past twenty years, focused his energies on the economic, technological and rights management issues involved in the licensing of copyrighted content. From 1981 through 1997 Don served in various management positions at the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), in which he was instrumental in transforming the process by which performance rights in musical compositions are licensed for television broadcast. He was a key participant in the complex music industry negotiations which culminated in the new "per program" license, as well as the development of the process by which music performance and pricing data are exchanged electronically between performing rights organizations and television broadcasters. Don was also instrumental in the development of the infrastructure that supports the direct and source licensing of performance rights in musical compositions. He testified in a number of legal trials, including the "Buffalo Broadcasting" rate proceeding in Federal District Court for the Southern District of New York. He also represented ASCAP on panels at numerous national conferences. In 1997 Don resigned from ASCAP to found the content management consultancy that is now Digital Economics. As Chief Executive Officer of Digital Economics, he has consulted with numerous clients that create, produce, distribute and transmit copyrighted content. In 1998 Digital Economics initiated a consulting relationship by which it advised Solana Technology Development on the development of its digital audio watermark technology as a content identification tool for the music and entertainment industries. Don soon became a major catalyst in the merger of Solana with Aris Technologies, thereby creating Verance Corporation. Don joined Verance in 2000, with key product management, marketing, business affairs, and sales responsibilities in the music and entertainment sectors. During his tenure he led the design of Verance's ConfirMedia™ watermark content identification products so that they address the needs of music writers, publishers, recording artists and record labels. In addition, Don strategized the design and introduction of software applications that would leverage the value of ConfirMedia watermark content identification products for advertisers, program producers, and broadcast and cable networks. He also strategized the innovative web portal and data report licenses that form the basis of Verance's relationships with its advertising, music and programming clients, and played a key role in forging international joint ventures. Don also represented Verance in numerous public appearances before representatives of the music and entertainment communities. He returned to the leadership of Digital Economics in October 2001.
