More to drive the copyleft crazy

National Journal's Tech Daily Dose reports that current FTC Commissioner Jon Leibowitz is a "leading contender" for the chairman's job. Immediately before being appointed to the FTC in 2004 by then-President Bush, Leibowitz served as Vice President for Congressional Affairs (i.e., a lobbyist) at the Motion Picture Association of America. Leibowitz was previously Democratic Counsel for the Senate Judiciary Committee's Antitrust Subcommittee and Staff Director for the Subcommittee on Terrorism and Technology, as well as Chief Counsel to Sens. Herb Kohl (D-WI) and Paul Simon (D-IL).
