The Electronic Frontier Foundation on Monday formally named the members of its new intellectual property litigation team, bringing on board Yahoo's senior legal director for copyright, and an entertainment attorney from the law firm of Loeb & Loeb in Chicago.
Corynne McSherry is the EFF's intellectual property director after being at the non-profit for five years. She'll be working with Senior Staff Attorney Abigail Phillips, who joined EFF from Yahoo! and Staff Attorney Julie Samuels.
McSherry's main focus areas at the EFF are fair use and First Amendment issues. She's worked on some of the EFF's most high-profile intellectual property cases, including the litigation over the Sony-BMG rootkit and a lawsuit against the political activist-pranksters The Yes Men in defending them against the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
At the EFF, Phillips will focus on online copyright and public policy issues, and Samuels will work on patent issues.
