The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has brought on former Nintendo counsel Marc Miller as its SVP of Internet content protection, charging him with overseeing the group’s worldwide content protection enforcement strategies and operations.
Based in Los Angeles, Miller will report to Michael Robinson, EVP of content protection and chief of operations.
“Marc’s extensive background in the enforcement sector will be invaluable to furthering the MPAA’s global online content protection strategy,” Robinson said. “Our commitment to protecting legitimate enterprise remains top priority for the Association. We are thrilled to have Marc on board to strengthen our operations in over 27 countries worldwide, including Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific.”
Miller comes to the MPAA from Nintendo of America, where he worked as antipiracy counsel for Americas and Asia-Pacific, where he helped implement content protection enforcement programs. Prior to Nintendo, Miller served as assistant deputy chief for IP litigation at the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section of the U.S. Department of Justice.
