Victoria Espinel to Become First Copyright Czar
October 4, 2009

Victoria A. Espinel, who was named last week as the nation's first "Copyright Czar" (or is that" Czarina"?), will oversee the enforcement of Intellectual Property laws in the U.S. and overseas.  The post, which was created by Congress last year under the Pro IP Act (Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property Act of 2008), must be approved by the Senate.
