The Telugu film industry has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). The agreement envisages waging a joint war against video piracy, apart from exchanging best practices.

The Andhra Pradesh Film Chamber of Commerce's MoU was achieved through MPAA’s Indian arm, the Motion Picture Distributors Association (India) with the objective of protecting content and intellectual property. 

The six member companies MPAA include Paramount Pictures Corporation, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Twentieth Century Fox film Corporation, Universal City Studios, Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and Warner Bros. Entertainment.

The APFCC was represented by its president D. Suresh Babu and noted producer Allu Arvind. Also present was chairman of the AVPC’s Governing Council Rajkumar.
