Acronym: Motion Picture Association of America
The movie industry representative organisation that has done very little to stop piracy, when compared to the RIAA. This may be in part because, piracy has not hurt the movie industry and DVD sales are high.
A report released in 2004 by the research firm OTX on behalf of the MPAA, found that in South Korea nearly one in three people who pirate movies are going to the cinema less frequently than in the past and that 52% of South Koreans buy less DVDs and videos than previously. Korea has high adoption rates for broadband internet so these rates are a useful indicator.
