The Motion Picture Association of America formed "To protect and support the industry, the major motion picture studios formed an organization in 1922 – now the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) – that has served as the voice and advocate of the motion picture and television industry around the world.  MPAA has evolved with the times in order to promote the success of our core mission: advancing the business and art of filmmaking, protecting the creative and artistic freedoms of filmmakers, and ensuring the satisfaction of our audiences worldwide."
