    event::about  The economy may be in crisis, but a crisis is a terrible thing to waste. This panel will explore whether or not entertainment industry deals are being executed in the current environment and how they operate compared to deals in recent years. New opportunities exist for dealmakers and this panel will examine creative ways to foster profitable partnerships when the chips are down. What happens when the recent private-equity backed deals start to unravel? Does partnering with a major corporation such as Walmart or Target succeed at boosting a band's record sales among Middle Americas, and does it affect the band's artistic credibility? Can current efforts to lower concert ticket prices and proposed anti-scalping legislation make concert attendance feasible for Americans with the lowest disposable income in years? This panel will explore the issues facing dealmakers in the entertainment industry in the current economic crisis and discuss ways to turn the recession's limited resources into unique growth strategies.

We can learn about their tastes, their buying behavior, their Internet browsing behavior and their opinions, and that's just scratching the surface. Research shows that consumers respond well to technology that delivers products that meet their needs and desires - including entertainment. Google bots are already scanning your Gmail to suggest advertisements based on your email content, but there seems to be a fine line between what's helpful and creepy. Consumers remain wary about the intrusion of technology on their privacy while using the internet. There are important precautions one can take to prevent unwanted disclosure of private information online. This panel will discuss the various privacy rules and regulations that apply to how companies collect and treat information about consumers and what additional regulations we may see in the near future.

    The Messenger stars Ben Foster as Will Montgomery, a U.S. Army officer who has just returned home from a tour in Iraq and is assigned to the Army's Casualty Notification service. Partnered with fellow officer Tony Stone (Woody Harrelson) to bear the bad news to the loved ones of fallen soldiers, Will faces the challenge of completing his mission while seeking to find comfort and healing back on the home front. When he finds himself drawn to Olivia (Samantha Morton), to whom he has just delivered the news of her husband's death, Will's emotional detachment begins to dissolve and the film reveals itself as a surprising, humorous, moving and very human portrait of grief, friendship and survival. Q&A with star Woody Harrelson and director Oren Moverman and other participants.RSVP is required to attend: www.going.com/cmj09themessenger
