Jane Saunders has been named senior VP of a new department of the Motion Picture Association of America dedicated to managing and promoting rights management and copyright royalty policy worldwide.

In her new position at the Rights Management Policy and Relations department, Ms. Saunders will oversee all departmental activities, including revenue agreement negotiations, rights management society operations and outreach initiatives. The new department will promote policies geared toward protecting the rights of U.S. copyright holders and producers and is a consolidation of several existing MPAA programs.

“Jane has unparalleled experience in the business, legal and political aspects of managing copyright royalties and dealing with rights management concerns,” said Dan Glickman, chairman and CEO of the MPAA. “I am grateful and enthusiastic that she has agreed to take on new responsibilities and oversee what will be a more efficient and effective global operation.”

Ms. Saunders has been with the MPAA since 1995 and for the past six years held the position of VP of international commercial relations.
