It’s exciting News!


Google has signed on again this year to sponsor the Digital Media Licensing Association, supporting both our Annual Conference and continued programming through 2021. Collaboration over the past year has seen incredible results and we look forward to continuing this relationship with Google in the future.


Paolo Malabuyo, Director of UX for YouTube Ads, will kick off this year’s Digital Media Licensing Conference October 25-30, delivering the opening keynote, “Embracing Complexity”. And, as a follow up to last year’s Conference, Francois Spies, Product Manager for Google Images, will share updates on new licensable image features  launched earlier this year.
