Dear all,

For those involved in trade and IP issues, some news - the new Director of Services and Investment, IP and Public Procurement at DG Trade<http://europa.eu/rapid/press-release_MEX-17-198_en.htm> at the Commission is Maria Martin Prat. So she'll be in charge of IP matters in trade agreements.

She has a strong reputation for being close to rightholders, as those involved in EU copyright reform will be aware. Thanks to colleagues in C4C for sharing the news.
