Video: Editor’s Keynote Interview with Rovio (Angry Birds) CEO Mikael Hed

I appeared on a number of panels at Midem 2012 in Cannes, France earlier this year, including a keynote interview with Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio, maker of the astoundingly popular Angry Birds app series.

In the following interview, Hed discusses how piracy can increase business, opines on whether music wants to be interactive, drops a hint about an upcoming music app from Rovio, and more. Apologies in advance for the rough voice. I did a lot of talking that week.
