Who Will Be The Copyright Czar?

I read an article recently discussing possible picks for President-elect Obama for the position of Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator.

From the article: "
Whoever Obama appoints can expect scrutiny from the content and technology industries. While ostensibly a coordinating position, the copyright czar job could easily expand to include advising the president." This will be a very important topic for the music industry and will effect many. This position was presented when President Bush signed the Prioritizing Resources and Organization for Intellectual Property (PRO-IP) Act in September.
