President Obama appoints RIAA lawyer as solicitor general
President Barack Obama selected former RIAA lawyer Donald Verrilli to become the US Solicitor General as the fight against Internet piracy rages on. International pirate cases have received significant coverage, but the Obama Administration and copyright holders will look to create new ways to combat piracy within the United States as well.
Verrilli will replace Elena Kagan, with Verrilli best known among PC users for helping the RIAA put together a crippling case against peer to peer file sharing service Grokster. Specifically, Verrilli represented 28 companies that sued the company behind the P2P program, which shut down and forfeited $50 million to copyright groups.
