UK record companies' trade association the BPI has appointed anti-piracy champion Roz Groome to its top legal job.

BPI Chairman Peter Jamieson has announced that Groome, 35, will take up the post of general counsel on November 1.

Said Jamieson, "Roz Groome has proven herself to be a staunch defender of the recording industry's rights in a string of high-profile cases over the past three years. Her experience in this field is second to none, and I know this well deserved appointment will be welcomed across the legal community and the industry at large."

Defending copyright

Groome's skills have brought the BPI victory in a series of legal cases against CD Wow, EasyInternetCafe and a string of cases brought by the BPI's Anti-Piracy Unit (APU), including cases resulting in substantial jail terms for over 20 defendants.

She has been instrumental in the BPI's high profile campaign against illegal filesharing.

As vice chair of the Alliance against IP Theft, she has an active role in lobbying for legislative change to IP law to give better protection to rights owners.

Since 2000, Groome has been company secretary and legal adviser to the BPI and its associate companies BRIT Awards Ltd, the BRIT Trust, the Official UK Charts Ltd and Music Industry Trusts Ltd. She has worked across the full range of the BPI's activities, and in particular in contract negotiations for the BRIT Awards and the Official UK Charts Company and on industry agreements with the Musicians' Union, Equity and the MCPS-PRS Alliance.

With degrees from both Oxford and Cambridge universities, Groome trained as a solicitor with Richards Butler before joining its media litigation department.

Said Groome, "The BPI's role is to protect, strengthen and promote the rights of its members. Enforcement is an important part of that, as is working with others in the IP industries and with our industry partners, particularly in an ever changing technological landscape. I look forward to playing a key role in that strategy."

Groome replaces Geoff Taylor who returns to the international record companies trade association, the IFPI, after a 16-month tenure overseeing the BPI's legal department.

Said Peter Jamieson, "Geoff is a very skilled lawyer who has undoubtedly made his mark at the BPI. We wish him well as he resumes his career at the IFPI, and look forward to working with him in the future."
