ISPs, programmers name Jill Lesser executive director of anti-piracy organization

Media companies and ISPs have established the Center for Copyright Information to combat online piracy, and have named an executive director, along with several advisory board members as the organization's program activities get under way. The new director, Jill Lesser says her focus in the upcoming anti-piracy efforts will be on "education and deterrence, not punishment." Lesser previously served as the deputy director of public policy and director of the Civic Media Project at People for the American Way, and as SVP for domestic public policy for AOL Time Warner.
