A post on the Harvard Democrats mailing list alerted me to the fact that Jack Valenti, CEO of the MPAA, would be replaced by none other than the director of the Harvard Institute of Politics, Dan Glickman. All indications seems to indicate that Glickman will continue in Valenti's footsteps. From the WaPo:

"Privacy and protecting the intellectual property of creative works has got to be the number one issue," Glickman said in the press conference to announce his ascension to one of Washington's top lobbying posts.

Hopefully, Glickman will prove to be more flexible than Valenti has. For an example, I encourage everyone to read The Tech's interview with Valenti earlier this year.

Still no news on who will replace Glickman at the IOP.
