The Motion Picture Association of America has joined an advocacy organization promoting best practices to make the Internet safer for children and families. The Sherman Oaks-based MPAA will use its membership in the Family Online Safety Institute to promote its guidelines for advertising content on the Internet and get the word out about its anti-piracy campaign. “The MPAA is looking forward to working with FOSI to help kids and parents understand the importance of respecting the intellectual property of others so that their own ideas and creative endeavors will be respected as well,” said MPAA Vice President and Domestic Counsel Orit Michiel, who will serve as the association’s representatice on the institute’s board of directors. Other members of the FOSI include AOL, AT&T, Google, Microsoft and Time Warner Cable.
