Org taps executive to help combat piracy

HOLLYWOOD — The Motion Picture Assn. of America has tapped a new executive in its efforts to combat piracy, naming Daniel M. Mandil to oversee worldwide legal affairs and intellectual property protection.

Mandil will join the industry’s chief lobbying arm on May 15 and assume the title of senior executive vice president, chief of legal affairs and intellectual property protection. He also will serve as corporate secretary, and will report to MPAA chairman and CEO Dan Glickman and president and COO Bob Pisano. An MPAA spokeswoman said he is filling a new position.

Glickman said Mandil “will be a crucial voice and guide for our industry as we continue to explore and embrace new ways to deliver high-quality premium content to consumers around the globe.”

Mandil previously was executive vice president, global general counsel and secretary of Sony BMG Music Entertainment. Before that, he had been litigation partner in the New York office of Covington & Burling and its predecessor firms.

He began his legal career as a judicial law clerk to then-Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Justice Sandra Day O’Connor. He and his family plan to move to Los Angeles from their current home in New York.
