Espinel Confirmed to 'IP Czar' post

It's now official: Victoria Espinel was confirmed by the Senate yesterday as the first White House Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator, better known as the "IP Czar."

The PRO-IP Act, which created the position to which Espinel was named, also requires that the Justice Department make annual reports on federal IP enforcement. Here's the first such report, released in October:
