MPAA's Been Caught Stealing

ArsTechnica has an article about MPAA being caught copying a movie. The movie, a documentary about the MPAA titled "This Film is Not Yet Rated," is highly critical of the rating organization. The MPAA contends that it was just for internal use and therefore does not constitute an illegal use.

The article does a pretty good job of saying that the lawsuit, file on the eve of Sundance, might be attention related. It does mention that the director did specifically ask that the MPAA make no copies. It's unclear if that has any bearing on it. I imagine that unless this guy's problem with the MPAA is stronger than a desire to market his movie, this lawsuit will quietly go away. --Terrence Ryan
