The Motion Picture Association of America, much maligned by file sharers everywhere, has gone through a “significant” round of layoffs, according to a studio source. The source said the layoffs were well over 10 percent and more reductions are expected.

A spokeswoman for the MPAA confirmed the layoffs to CNET News, but declined to provide numbers or percentages. The group battles copyright infringement on behalf of the six largest film studios. How the cutbacks will affect the group’s antipiracy efforts is unclear.
