Since its early days, the MPA, often referred to now as "a little State Department," has expanded to cover a wide range of foreign activities falling in the diplomatic, economic, and political arenas. The Motion Picture Association conducts these activities from its headquarters in Los Angeles, California and from offices in Washington, D.C.; Brussels; New Delhi; Rio de Janeiro; Singapore; Mexico City; Toronto; and Jakarta.
It has international affiliates, like the Japanese one.
According to today's WSJ:
The MPA is so concerned about global piracy that the organization has created itw own politce force and spy network to trreack down pirates and help customs agents raid illegal operations and make arrests. (B4)
