MPA: We’ve Reached A Turning Point On Piracy

It's nice to see the European arm of the MPAA acknowledge that, not only has progress been made in the fight against piracy, a turning point has been reached as well. It kinda makes you wonder how much things would change if there was even greater availability of digital media at a lower price point.

The president of the MPAA's European operation says he believes a turning point has been reached on piracy, with service providers and search engines beginning to understand they all have a role to play. However, it's also clear that Hollywood is fearful of opening up content across Europe, which in itself could contribute to piracy.
