Despite warnings on its own Web site about making unauthorized copies, the Motion (Overview, Articles, Company) Picture Association of America apparently did just that to a film called “This Film Is Not Yet Rated,” a documentary about how the MPAA rates movies (which itself garnered the too-naughty-for-nice-folks rating of NC-17). The association claims the filmmaker was stalking members of its ratings board, so it made a digital copy and locked it away for legal reasons. Uh huh. I hear that MPAA officials have agreed to not distribute the film as a BitTorrent (Overview, Articles, Company) file, but they were unwilling to give up the eye patch and the peg leg.
