EFF is pleased to announce the newest member of our legal team, Staff Attorney Mitch Stoltz. At EFF, Mitch will focus on copyright, trademark, trade secrets, and patent issues and policy, including the DMCA exemptions we’ve requested from the Copyright Office, the anti-circumvention provisions of the DMCA, and the ongoing fights around secondary copyright liability.
Previously, Mitch worked on copyright and antitrust litigation for high-tech clients at Constantine Cannon LLP in Washington, D.C. Before his career as an attorney, Mitch was Chief Security Engineer at Netscape and Mozilla.org and interned at the Computer and Communications Industry Association. Mitch has a JD from Boston University and a BA in Public Policy and Computer Science from Pomona College.
EFF also welcomes a new writer to the staff, Rebecca Bowe. Rebecca comes to us after working as a reporter at the San Francisco Bay Guardian where she covered everything from local elections in San Francisco, to social justice movements, to energy and environmental issues in California. At EFF, she will work with the development team, writing grant requests and helping us spread the word about the work we do here at EFF. We’re very pleased to start the new year with new staffers. Welcome Mitch and Rebecca!
