Yesterday it was announced that Netflix would be joining the Motion Picture Association of America. Maybe best known for their efforts to crack down on piracy, the MPAA also works to advocate for the future of movies and TV.
“On behalf of the MPAA and its member companies, I am delighted to welcome Netflix as a partner,” said MPAA Chairman and CEO Charles Rivkin. “All of our members are committed to pushing the film and television industry forward, in both how we tell stories and how we reach audiences. Adding Netflix will allow us to even more effectively advocate for the global community of creative storytellers, and I look forward to seeing what we can all achieve together.”
With this move, Netflix joins a long list of movie and TV studios including Disney, Paramount, Sony, Fox, Universal, and Warner Bros.
“Joining the Motion Picture Association further exemplifies our commitment to ensuring the vibrancy of these creative industries and the many talented people who work in them all over the world,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer. “We look forward to supporting the association team and their important efforts.”
