MPAA Threatens to Boycot Cinemas (and Boost Piracy)

The MPA(A) is threatening to deprive Indonesian movie theaters of major US film releases if the Government continues with s proposed levy.

“Cinema screens across the country may soon have little to show except local movies if a new threat by American film producers to boycott exports to Indonesia is carried out.”

“The warning has come from the Motion Picture Association, the international counterpart of the Motion Picture Association of America, which has apparently been angered by a proposed levy slapped on imported films.”

Not only is this threat a totally inappropriate abuse of power, it’s also utterly useless and a healthy boost to movie piracy.
