Delay Over Confirmation of Carla Hayden as Librarian of Congress

Our obstructionist Congress is saying that LOC Librarian of Congress nominee Carla Hayden is pro-obscenity. Consequently they are delaying a confirmation for the post (a la the Supreme Court). Report via TechDirt.

From the article: " A key issue, of course, is that the Copyright Office is part of the Library of Congress, so Hayden would run the Copyright Office as well. In our original post, we already noted the rather snide statement put out by the RIAA , which basically says "Hayden's fine for the library, but she better keep her filthy hands off of the Copyright Office":

“We are gratified that President Obama has chosen a qualified and capable nominee to be the next Librarian of Congress. We look forward to working with Dr. Hayden.

“It is worth noting that the Library of Congress and the U.S. Copyright Office have been mutually respectful of each other’s areas of expertise. We would hope that the new Librarian would continue to demonstrate that respect for the Copyright Office’s expertise in copyright policy and recommendations to Congress.”
