p2p news / p2pnet:- The movie studios have clearly lost faith in Dan `Jedi` Glickman`s ability to effectively lead the good fight against p2p and file sharers.
From October 1, ex-Screen Actors Guild (SAG) stalwart Bob Pisano steps up to take charge of the anti-p2p effort as president and operations boss of the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America), says the movie studio pseudo-kop unit.
He’ll have day-to-day responsibility operations, domestic and international, other than Washington, DC-based external and governmental affairs, says the MPAA.
Glickman, meanwhile, will, lead the motion picture industry`s voluntary rating system, the Classification and Rating Administration (CARA) and its companion Advertising Administration,” says the MPAA.
But ex-MPAA boss Jack Valenti continues to lurk in the background.
“I consult with Jack a lot – he’s still my mentor – and he advised me that I needed to do what was best for me,” the SAG Watchdog has Glickman saying.
“I’m not Jack, and this is what I need to do.”
