A representative of the Motion Picture Association of America told an audience at Yale University April 25 that his organization’s litigation against the makers and distributors of a DVD decryption program was central to the fight against movie piracy.

MPAA’s Vice President and Deputy General Counsel Gregory P. Goeckner spoke at a panel titled “In the Trenches: Reports From the DMCA Battlefield,” which was part of Yale’s “E-Day” events concerning e-commerce and Internet law.
