He makes his money by consumers purchasing content starring his clients like Larry David and Aaron Sorkin. This means that he dreads Internet piracy, but believes that censoring the Internet through laws like SOPA and PIPA are a terrible idea. While on stage Emanuel contemplated out loud about how using social media to fund some of the content would be a paradigm shift.
