marks the end of another year and we draw together to muse about Hollywood’s
upcoming slates and the year ahead, it’s also a good opportunity to cast an eye
back at how things have progressed.
Last year, 93 different audio and video camcord releases of MPA titles
were traced back to cinemas throughout the region.
Unfortunately, too many
jurisdictions throughout the region still have insufficient laws and
regulations on their books to effectively address unauthorized camcording. Here again, the MPA’s initiatives with governments
throughout the region include raising awareness about the problem and its
impact on their local businesses and national economies, and offering
assistance filling any legislative gaps or deficiencies found to exist.
