The Motion Picture As*sociation of Cambodia (MPAC), an independent body that aims to protect intellectual property, officially opened its doors Wednesday, vowing to put an end to the sale of pirated DVDs in Phnom Penh as its first order of business. “We are going…to serve everybody a notice, all the vendors, to get rid of that stuff [pirated DVDs],” said MPAC president Ung Nareth on the sidelines of the association’s inaugural event at NagaWorld casino Wednesday afternoon, which included speakers from the Ministry of Culture, the Washington-based Motion Picture Association (MPA) and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.
