More Big Content attorneys to Obama Administration

National Journal's Tech Daily Dose reports that Hogan & Hartson partner Mary Ellen Callahan has been tapped as Chief Privacy Officer at the Department of Homeland Security. Callahan has represented the MPAA in a variety of matters before the Federal Trade Commission on such issues as privacy, spam, and marketing to children. A few examples of Callahan's work can be found here, here, and here. Interestingly, Callahan worked on MPAA matters at Hogan with partner Christine Varney, who has been nominated as Assistant Attorney General in charge of the Justice Department's Antitrust Division.
