Former Senator Chris Dodd to Head Motion Picture Association

Add caption

  After a year-long search to replace Dan Glickman, former senator Chris Dodd has been named the new head of the MPAA. Dodd is an American lawyerlobbyist, and Democratic Party politician who served as a United States Senator from Connecticut for a thirty-year period ending with the 111th United States Congress     

     Barry Meyer, chairman of Warner Bros., said Dodd has the "right political instincts and experience" to lead the film industry against content piracy. You can read more here; I'll wait. 

(tick, tock; tick, tock) 

     So, what do you think? Is digital piracy about to get a wake-up call? Is Dodd the right person for the job?

  1. I'd like to see him try and stop me from pirating anything. The truth is that as long as there is digital media there will be ways to copy it and get it for free, because the experts they bring in to make their security systems and the hackers they catch. And as we all know the best hackers never get caught.
