Steven Fabrizio has been named senior exec VP and global general counsel for the MPAA, having served as its lead outside counsel in copyright and content protection issues.

Fabrizio, chair of Jenner & Block’s content, media and entertainment practice in Washington, led the MPAA’s legal effort against cyberlocker Hotfile as well as the settlement that led to the shutdown of Isohunt.com.

Fabrizio succeeds Henry Hoberman, who departed the MPAA in September after two years in the position.

Fabrizio will oversee all legal, content protection and rights management programs for the MPAA. He will start in his new job in December.

Before he joined Jenner & Block, Fabrizio was senior VP of business and legal affairs for the Recording Industry Assn. of America.
