Meet the new Sheriff in town, her name is Victoria A. Espinel. She has a impressive record and she is now the US Copywrite Czar. Here is her record and a little bio on her:
She was appointed on Friday.
“We believe she will be fair in her approach to intellectual property enforcement issues,” said Gigi Sohn, president of Public Knowledge, a left-leaning digital-rights advocacy group.
The “Enforcement of Intellectual Property Rights Act,” known as the Pro-IP Act, requires the new czar to “report directly to the president and Congress regarding domestic international intellectual property enforcement programs.”
“Today’s nomination is a positive development towards fully implementing and funding the Pro-IP Act, and we hope President Obama and Congress will continue this important work by ensuring Victoria has the resources and authority necessary to get the job done,” said Mark Esper, a vice president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
