Two new copyright royalty judges have been named to the Copyright Royalty Board by James H. Billington, the librarian of Congress, according to a May 6 statement by the agency, which is the parent agency of the Copyright Office.
David R. Strickler has been appointed to fill the vacancy created by the retirement of Stanley C. Wisniewski in August. This particular seat on the board is designated for an expert on economics and has been filled in the interim by Richard C. Strasser. Strickler's term ends in January 2016.
Strickler earned his law degree from the University of Miami, and he taught economics at Brookdale Community College, Lincroft, N.J.
Billington has named Jesse Feder to the seat on the board designated for an expert in copyright law, previously occupied by William J. Roberts, who has accepted the position of senior counsel to the register of copyrights. Feder's term ends in January 2014.
Feder has served as director of international trade and IP at the Business Software Alliance since 2004, and prior to that served as acting associate register at the copyright Office and legal adviser in the Library of Congress's Office of the General Counsel. He earned his law degree at Columbia University.
Wisniewski and Roberts were among the first three appointments to the board when it was created in 2006. The seat of the chief royalty judge, currently occupied by Suzanne M. Barnett, is designated for an expert on adjudication and trial procedure.
The appointments are effective as of May 6. The librarian of Congress makes these appointments with the advice of the register of copyrights, Maria A. Pallante.
