Renata Hesse Interviewed on Media & Technology TrendsSeptember 2, 2021
Renata Hesse was interviewed in icarus, a publication of the American Bar Association's Section of Antitrust Law Media and Technology Committee, for its “Frequency Boost” feature. This column aims to educate readers on the contributions made by the diverse community of people who impact antitrust and consumer protection in the media and technology sectors. Renata was interviewed by Courtney Armour, the Chief Legal Officer for the Distilled Spirits Council and Responsibility.org. In the discussion, Renata spoke about her work in the media and technology sectors, and the trends she has seen over the course of her career. “I think the biggest changes in the industry relate to the proliferation of content across a variety of different platforms and the changes in the ways that people consume content,” Renata said. “The pandemic has accelerated those changes. My own sense is that antitrust is still figuring out how to deal with these changes and we haven't yet landed on a consistent approach.”
Additional interviewees included Mary Ellen Callahan, former Chief Privacy Officer for the U.S. Department of Homeland Security; Victoria Luxardo Jeffries, former attorney for the Federal Trade Commission; and Melanie Kiser, former attorney in the DOJ's Media, Entertainment, and Communications section.
