The Motion Picture Association of America is the peak body for the major commercial movie companies in America. Their slogan on their website is, "The Voice and Advocate of the Amercian Motion Picture, Home Video and Television Industries". [1]

Campaigns

The Motion Picture Association of America sponsored "an essay contest in which students competed to write the most creative plan to convince their peers not to download content illegally." Concerned by industry-funded "claims ... that far exceed what copyright is all about," the American Library Association is developing its own copyright issues classroom materials. The National Education Association applauded the ALA, saying students should not "parrot for some corporate agenda." [1]
