The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) is spending millions on lawyers and bribes contributions for Congress critters to prevent people from making unauthorized copies of media produced by their members.

However, the MPAA believes they are above the law.

The Motion Picture Association of America was caught with its pants down, admitting to making unauthorized copies of the documentary This Film Is Not Yet Rated in advance of this week’s Sundance Film Festival.

This Film Is Not Yet Rated looks at the motion picture ratings system created and run by the MPAA. Director Kirby Dick submitted the film for rating in November. After receiving the movie, the MPAA subsequently made copies without Dick’s permission.

This textbook definition of irony is made complete by the fact that this film is extremely critical of the MPAA for the double standards taken by the organization in applying their movie rating system.

Hypocrisy doesn’t really seem to cover this, does it?
