Lawyers Promoted at MPAA

April 12, 2012
Our colleague Josh Smith reports over on Tech Daily Dose:

Still feeling the sting of a bitter fight over antipiracy legislation, the Motion Picture Association of America announced on Wednesday it is reorganizing its legal affairs teams in Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles.

Former Federal Communications Commission staffer Linda Kinney has been promoted and will serve in a new position as senior vice president and associate general counsel in the entertainment industry group's D.C. office. Ben Sheffner, a noted copyright guru who was hired last year, has been named vice president of legal affairs and will be moved from Los Angeles to work for Kinney in D.C.

"With these promotions, we've strengthened our legal capabilities in key areas," senior executive vice president Henry Hoberman, who oversees the MPAA legal efforts, said in a statement. "As a result, the MPAA is well-positioned to address cutting edge legal issues as our industry continues to innovate and distribute content across multiple platforms and devices in the digital age."

The MPAA, headed by former Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., came out on the losing end of a bruising battle over antipiracy legislation earlier this year. The MPAA and other entertainment groups fought for stricter laws against pirated content on foreign websites, but the bills were abandoned after widespread protests.
