EFF's Cindy Cohn Wins IP Vanguard Award from State Bar of California

We're pleased to announce that EFF's Legal Director, Cindy Cohn, has won a 2010 Intellectual Property Institute Vanguard Award from the State Bar of California.

Cindy was one of four legal professionals honored for spearheading new developments in the world of intellectual property. We're proud to see the work that we do to preserve balance in copyright, trademark, and patent law recognized, and we'll continue to fight for the fans, the tinkerers, independent journalists and bloggers, and consumers.

The 2nd Annual IP Vanguard Award will be presented to Cindy during an awards Luncheon on Friday, October 29, at the 2010 Annual IP Institute meeting in Napa, California.
