Bob Pisano, President of the MPAA, called the increasing online copyright violation “epidemic,” saying that disconnecting infringers from the web is the only way to slow the dissemination of the “disease”.
The MPAA continues its largely fruitless efforts to convince the community that the most important industry in the world is currently in immediate danger, and that it may soon die without decisive action.
Although global ticket sales increased up to 30% over the last 5 years, the MPAA still keeps a straight face telling government officials of the different countries that it needs their help. For example, the recent attempt was the call for increased scrutiny of online infringement, resulted in the “Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act”, where the MPAA managed to convince a group of Senators in the necessity to trace and close down online services dedicated to facilitating illegal downloads. This step caused much criticism from the observers, equaling the law to unauthorized censorship of the Internet, especially being that the proposed legislation would put unconstitutional restraints on free speech with inadequate process.
Recently President for the MPAA, Bob Pisano, told some Japanese government officials and music and movie industry representatives that their country should implement a “three-strikes” system designed to deal with the trouble of illegal downloading, as it has already been introduced in France, South Korea, Taiwan, and is scheduled to 2011 in the UK.
Pisano said they knew that it’s impossible to develop an integrated approach to the issue, because there are too many cultural and practical problems demanding different approaches from different nations and or regions. However, the MPAA believes that basically the problem is the same – that the most essential thing is individual awareness and responsibility. That is believed to be the best way to make further progress.
Although it can’t be proved, the observers doubt that Pisano told the government representatives about successive years of record breaking profits the industry has been enjoying during last years, or about the 30% increase in global ticket sales. The only question is why it shouldn’t be considered moral disclosure to require that file-sharers be cut off from the “information superhighway”.

|maybe the MPAA should be investigated, it seems to be a terrorist organization with the way they are operating.|
they should be disbanded and their operating officers and managers arrested for all of the civil rights violations and the way they terrorize people for no reason other than to extort money from them.
