    Heavy Hitters Step Up in UIGEA Battle

    This is good news

    The Interactive Media Entertainment & Gaming Association (iMEGA) just announced the addition of one of Washington DC's most accomplished attorneys to their legal team, Stephen A. Saltzburg, who is professor of law at George Washington University. Saltzburg has been working with iMEGA's legal team as it gets ready for its appeal case being heard by the US 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals.

    "Prof. Saltzburg is simply one of the best," said Joe Brennan Jr., Chairman and CEO of iMEGA in a press release on their site. "His experience speaks for itself. We are fortunate to have a true heavyweight advocate in our corner."

    Saltzburg joins lead counsel Eric M. Bernstein, noted First Amendment and Internet Law attorney, and Edward Leyden, iMEGA's president and chief counsel, as an integral part of iMEGA's legal team in its showdown over UIGEA with the U.S. Department of Justice.

    It sounds like Brennan will have a strong voice in Saltzburg. Stay tuned, I'll be sure to keep my eye on this.
