A Boss for ‘Six Strikes’ Copyright Enforcement; New York Times, 4/3/12

Ben Sisario, New York Times; A Boss for ‘Six Strikes’ Copyright Enforcement:

"Last summer, Internet service providers and entertainment trade groups agreed to a “six strikes” plan for controlling online piracy — a system of escalating pokes, prods and throttled Internet access for users suspected of infringing copyrights.

A new group, the Center for Copyright Information, was set up to put the plan into effect. On Monday the group finally named an executive director and four board members, earning approving if still skeptical nods from some observers."
