Movie Ratings on website

I know the movie rating system is proprietary, but I wondered if our usage of it in the catalog would cover bringing it up into the website.

The MPAA has posted guidelines for using their ratings at http://www.mpaa.org/Ratings_Rules.pdf. It seems like they are mostly concerned with the ratings being displayed appropriately or with someone else using them to rate other items.
