Gerd Leonhard, Media Futurist, ictQATAR Connected Speaker

Every content and media industry, including film, TV, radio, gaming, software, music, publishing and news, has been severely impacted by the explosive growth of the Internet and the empowerment of the hyper-connected consumer.

The move from a pre-internet broadcast culture to a broadband culture has changed pretty much everything, from economic models and their underlying business logic to the very definition of copyright and fair use, according to media futurist Gerd Leonhard. Leonhard, described by the Wall Street Journal as one of the world's leading media futurists, shared his bold predictions for the future of the media and content industries with nearly 500 people as part of ictQATAR's Connected Speakers Series.
