Warner Digital Ups Hayes24 Jun, 2008 By: Billy Gil
Warner Bros. Digital Distribution has promoted Jacqueline Jourdain Hayes to SVP of business and legal affairs.
The former VP of business and legal affairs will now provide legal counsel to the company's senior management on the acquisition, distribution and protection of content for digital platforms and other digital initiatives. She also will oversee the negotiation of video-on-demand and electronic sellthrough licenses across multiple digital platforms, and manage legal issues around new digital business models, including digital copy.
“Jackie has been working on our digital business for quite some time, her expertise in this area is unparalleled,” said Clarissa Weirick, general counsel for the division. “The digital business is still one of those areas where you are often making the rules as you go along, which requires someone like Jackie who is confident and creative in negotiating this new terrain.”
Hayes has been with Warner since 1998 and joined the digital division in 2006, helping develop new business models and licenses for digital distribution.
