The Entertainment Software Association has announced the hiring of Christian Genetski as its new general counsel, replacing former ESA counsel and senior VP Kenneth Doroshow, who departed in January. Genetski has served as a founding partner at Zwillinger Genetski LLP and a partner at Sonnenschein, where he has defended many prominent entertainment software clients on issues such as government regulation and third-party infringement, the ESA pointed out in its announcement. Other past clients include social networking sites, internet portals, ISPs, and satellite and cable television providers, according to a biography posted on the Zwillinger Genetski LLP site. Genetski has also worked as a federal prosecutor in the Computer Crime and Intellectual Property Section and served as the vice-chair of Sonneschein’s Internet, Data Protection, and Communications Practice Group. “Christian is a highly praised and respected attorney who brings with him years of experience on issues critical to our members future success,” ESA president and CEO Michael Gallagher said in a statement. “He will be a strong addition to an already accomplished and remarkable team.” Former ESA counsel Doroshow helped represent the industry in the high-profile Supreme Court case surrounding California's law restricting sales of violent games. After presenting arguments in that case, Doroshow said that "it was gratifying to hear all the themes that we expressed in our papers to be echoed by the justices during the day."
