Two top executives for the Motion Picture Association of America recently gave an interview, expressing their views on copyright in the modern environment, as well as on the anti-piracy approach which comes with it. They believe their group will never stop fighting against copyright violations, and admit that piracy won’t ever be defeated for 100%.
MPAA’s top executives, Craig Hoffman and Fritz Attaway, involved in designing the entertainment industry’s anti-piracy tactics and in communications for the entertainment industry body, were recently invited for an interview to voice their views on copyright and the entertainment industry in the modern environment.
Hoffman and Attaway talked on such subjects as “three-strikes” regimes, fair use and future of DVDs. Besides, they gave some information on the decisions made in MPAA over the years. The main idea of the interview was that although the organization thinks the rate of the piracy can be reduced by beating the pirated movies by availability and quality, the representatives don’t believe the piracy will go away forever.
Fritz Attaway explained that they of course will do whatever they can in order to disincline unauthorized access of their movies, but at the same time the group has no illusions to be completely successful. Piracy will stay with the industry forever, although MPAA will try to keep it at a reasonable level, allowing copyright holders to earn enough revenue to recoup expenses, thus providing them an incentive to continue making new films.
Attaway is quite optimistic that the organization will be able to achieve that, claiming that a very large part of the industry members is currently developing new business models providing the consumers an opportunity to access the copyrighted works absolutely legally in the way they would find affordable and more convenient than an illegal one.
When compared MPAA’s anti-piracy efforts with those of the RIAA, the MPAA representatives argued that although the two groups chose different ways to pursue their goals, they both act very aggressively. The reason why MPAA doesn’t use “sue-em-all” tactics so widely is that because it’s very expensive in comparison with the other ways to achieve the industry’s goals – for example, education, or encouraging the development of new business models.

|pirating is always going to be around no matter what , probably anti-piracy people that a B$#ching about pirates are probably downloading free stuff them self's.|
|thanks for the artical sam long live the pirates|
|You know something? You have to take moment to pause here and ask yourself ONE simpe question, what is the definition of a pirate and who is the REAL pirate here. Simply put, in the most simplist of terms, real pirates don't share. Every thing they do is based on the GREED Principle, horde and hide. Everyone here does exactly the opposite, they share, some more than others and vice versa, but it is still SHARING. All these acronymed A.C.I.D.(Anal/Cranial Inversion Disorder) freaks try to make it seem that they lose something they never had in the first place...profits. The attorneys and politicians they employ suffer from severe L.I.D.S.(Limited Intellectual Disability Syndrome)conditions AKA as being "stupid". All your life you are taught to share, be nice, be fair, but what you learn as you get older is that advice is a smoke and mirrors front to project an image of the smiling policeman in your kindergarten class with a little boy on one side and little girl on the other, both feeling safe and secure simply by the representation of the law being there. I have never seen that person in real life. So what is the truth about pirates here? Need someone to draw you out a map to get to the treasure of truth? Nah? Didn't think so. It's like the idiot politician and redneck ranchers in Colorado and Idaho that want to kill off the wolf population by having them declared as "scavengers" or "lethal predators", monsters at least. To me, it's what I see that defines what I believe, and what I have faith in, most of all what I experienced in my life, not what someone who is willing to put my life and those I care about on the line for their profit margins. I challenge anyone any time to try to define their purpose of being here and for this, I DO have the answers, and you could too, just open your eyes and look beyond the media of mud.None of you are pirates because you SHARE your self with others unconditonally, YOU are the positives in a greedy negative society.||
