At the MPAA, she’ll report to David Mandil, the organization’s senior executive vice president, general counsel and chief content protection officer.

The MPAA says that Thorland’s job will be to manage both domestic and international content protection civil litigation efforts.

Thorland will remain in Los Angeles. She’s a graduate of the University of California at Los Angeles School of Law.
