The Hill Times is reporting that Barbara Motzney, formerly the Director General of Canadian Heritage's Planning and Intergovernmental Affairs Branch, has been named the Director General of Copyright Policy at Canadian Heritage. Motzney brings an interesting background to the position, including time at Industry Canada's E-commerce Task Force in the late 1990s, the Canadian Heritage broadcasting policy division, and international work on the UNESCO culture initiatives. Indeed, her speeches and writings highlight her informed background – see, for example, this speech on developing a national access strategy in Canada that focuses on the importance of access to information in order to fully participate in society, as well as this cultural diversity speech, which acknowledges the risks associated with the concentration of control over content in fewer and fewer hands.
