CLEARPLAY WATCH The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) comes out in favor of the Family Entertainment and Copyright Act:
The studios oppose the ClearPlay language, but support the legislation in general because it includes several unrelated proposals favorable to Hollywood.

The Senate passed the bill in March; the House is expected to approve its version in a few weeks. "We think the good far outweighs the bad," said [MPAA spokesman] Feehery.
