The staff of the AAA under the MPA operation drastically reduced levels of piracy by emplacing an aggressive campaign. The program seized over 2 million CDs and cassettes, concluded over 500 raids against pirates and their duplication sites, and imprisoned over 15 copyright offenders. The program reinforced its vigilant actions with awareness campaigns to the consumers through all media (television, newspapers and radio), liaising with the authorities for stronger copyright and trademark enforcement (with the applicable Governments and US Embassies), and conducting training seminars to promote effective copyright and trademark enforcement. In summary the staff of the AAA has trained over 500 enforcement authorities on how to effectively enforce the copyright law and have established excellent rapport with all levels of the Government, international anti-piracy organizations and US State Department.

The AAA has established full time operations in UAE, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait. Each country is managed by retired Command Police Officers who have taken their cumulative 100 years of enforcement experiences against hard core crime (homicide, narcotics, theft,..) within their respective countries and are applying it to copyright and trademark infringements. The Operation Managers of each country have been nominated to their positions within AAA by the leadership of their respective countries and combined with their extensive network that has been cultivated over the years, facilitates effective enforcement of the law.
