Congratulations to Creative Commons

Creative Commons, just announced the hiring of a new General Counsel (and it should be said that the GC role at Creative Commons has and will always be more than merely a GC). This is wonderful news for them and for the world.
As Professor Lessig points out in his blog post, I've been lucky enough to have the two of the former Creative Commons General Counsel, Glenn Brown and Mia Garlick, decide to come to Google as Product Counsel. Both Glenn and Mia are phenomenal lawyers and great to work with. They get products and are zealous advocates for users. From what I've heard about the new General Counsel, Virginia Rutledge, she is cut from the same cloth and will serve Creative Commons very well.
Congratulations!
