Reader Poll: Where Will DOJ Official Behind 100% Licensing End Up After Obama Administration?


Readers Poll:  Where will Renata Hesse end up after DOJ?

Renata Hesse is the Obama administration official behind the 100% licensing rule that governs songwriters associations.  We are concerned that this rule change (or “re-interpretation”) is designed to benefit YouTube. The fact Renata Hesse  worked for Google in private practice and did not recuse herself only heightens our concern.  We also find it curious that this rule change was proposed despite the fact the US Copyright office essentially told the DOJ no one was asking for the change and it is a bad idea. 

So dear readers let’s have a little fun today.  Where do you think Renata Hesse will end up after the Obama Administration?
