The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has been accused of breaking its own rules and making illegal copies of a film. The claims, which came to light at the Sundance Film Festival, centre on a movie called This Film Is Not Yet Rated.
The film examines the role of the MPAA in deciding classifications for films containing scenes of sex and violence, and investigates whether it treats independent films unfairly. Kirby Dick, the film's maker, submitted the film in November and said that the MPAA's lawyer admitted to copying the DVD. He has now filed a suit to recover all copies of the film and to determine who ordered the illegal actions.
