This article reports that the head of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) pushed the Chinese to crack down on movie piracy and open its markets to additional American-made films by the 2008 Olympics. Speaking on Tuesday at CineAsia in Beijing, MPAA chairman and CEO Dan Glickman told festival attendees that the Olympics is a perfect time to prove the nation's commitment to ending copyright piracy and opening its markets, according to an advance copy of the speech provided by the MPAA. Motion picture piracy in China costs U.S. studios nearly $300 million a year, according to industry estimates. While the Chinese allow as many as 20 U.S. theatrical releases into the country each year, the average number of U.S. films admitted is 14.
