Google Gets a Copyright Pro
High-profile technology attorney Fred von Lohmann is reportedly leaving the Electronic Frontier Foundation and heading to Google. He’ll be the search giant’s new senior copyright counsel, CNET reports.
No confirmation from Google (GOOG) yet. But assuming this is a done deal, it’s a big one in the intellectual property world: Von Lohmann has been a prominent advocate for tech companies in legal fights and is best known for backing the likes of YouTube, LimeWire and Grokster in their battles with copyright owners.
