July 1-- The new head of the Motion Picture Association of America says his top priorities include fighting piracy.
Dan Glickman succeeds veteran movie industry lobbyist Jack Valenti.
Glickman is a former Kansas lawmaker and agriculture secretary in the Clinton administration.
The association's choice of Glickman over studio insiders reflects the industry's preference for someone who's already known in the nation's capital.
The Motion Picture Association oversees U.S. movie ratings and lobbies for Hollywood's top seven studios.
