From our People News page: The National Association of Broadcasters hired Anna Chauvet as vice president of public policy, a newly created position.
She most recently was associate general counsel for the U.S. Copyright Office, where she worked on various legal and policy matters, NAB said, “including spearheading four rulemakings to implement provisions of the Orrin G. Hatch–Bob Goodlatte Music Modernization Act (MMA).” It said she also helped develop litigation strategy and inform the federal government’s views in copyright litigation before the Supreme Court and district courts.
Before the Copyright Office she worked in private practice representing entertainment, banking and technology clients on copyright, trademark and patent matters.
NAB President/CEO Gordon Smith praised her “sterling credentials as an expert in copyright law, including deep knowledge of the music licensing regime.” She will report to Shawn Donilon, executive vice president of government relations.
