Streaming service Netflix has become a member of the American Association of film (Motion Picture Association of America, MPAA). This was reported on the website of the organization.
According to the information, Netflix entered into an organization with a 97-year history, which includes the six largest Hollywood film studios: Walt Disney, Paramount, Sony, 20th Century Fox, Universal City Studios and Warner Bros.
“Membership in the Association of motion picture companies proves our commitment to the industry and the talented people who work in it worldwide,” said chief content officer of Netflix Ted Sarandos.
I should add that this in no small measure contributed to the success of the film “Rome” Alfonso Cuaron, who received 15 nominations for the award “Oscar”.
The MPAA representative Charles Rivkin expressed the hope that cooperation with the online theater will increase the level of copyright protection.
Note, in order to become part of the MPAA, the streaming service had to leave the Association of Internet companies (Internet Association), a member of which he was listed in 2013. It also includes Google, Amazon and Facebook.
As previously reported, Netflix will release several films for participation in film festivals.
