Article: New Register of Copyrights: "Unfortunately, I start with enforcement"

Maria Pallante has been selected to be the new Register of Copyrights. She has the acting Register of Copyrights since the previous person stepped down in 2010.  In this interview, Pallante talks about fair use, DMCA and other topics.  The article title gets at one of key key points:
...I start with enforcement because, if you don't have exclusive rights in the first place, you can't get to the other questions.
In general, Pallante appears to be open to dialog and to change. I hope she will work with all sides and listen to many opinions.
