Commercializing Content Rights for Mobile stimulated discussion about the potentially explosive growth in Smartphones and tablets. The use of mobile devices is expected to grow explosively over the next several years, with mobile internet penetration expected to grow from 35% to 65% in just five years and with over 90% of people using a mobile device while multitasking. The panel investigated how companies have creatively multiplied avenues for commercializing their content rights. Watch this Panel on OMDC's YouTube Channel.
