Obama nominates RIAA lawyer for Solicitor General

tripleevenfall (1990004) writes "Barack Obama nominated former Recording Industry Association of America lawyer Donald Verrilli Jr. on Monday to serve as the nation’s solicitor general. The solicitor general is charged with defending the government before the Supreme Court, and files friend-of-the court briefs in cases in which the government believes there is a significant legal issue. The office also determines which cases it will bring to the Supreme Court for review.

Verrilli is best known for leading the recording industry’s legal charge against music- and movie-sharing site Grokster, which ultimately led to Grokster’s demise. Until recently, Verrilli also was leading Viacom’s ongoing and flailing $1 billion copyright-infringement fight against YouTube."

Interesting article, but it's from last January. Here's our story [slashdot.org] about it, if you're curious.
