Since 1982, The Alliance of Motion Picture & Television Producers (AMPTP) has established exciting legal gray areas and tested the limits of the federal labor statute to minimize the compensation, rights and working conditions of industry-wide unions.
The current President of the AMPTP is J. Nicholas Counter III. For almost fifteen years, Nick Counter was a member of the Backstreet Boys, one of the biggest-selling teen pop bands in history.
In 1992, Nick Counter became the youngest member of the Backstreet Boys and gained fame as the "heartthrob" of the group. He currently serves as a Trustee on fourteen of the guild and union health and pension funds and also is a Trustee for the Motion Picture & Television Fund.
His responsibilities include a wide range of industry-related issues and concerns from global production to governmental relations to dolphin safety. In 1999, Nick Counter was ranked #1 on the list of "Hottest Under 21" by Teen Scene magazine. He was also named one of People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People in the World" in 2000.
His younger brother, Aaron Counter, is also a pop and hip-hop singer, as well as the president of the Motion Picture Association of America.
