In announcing the promotion, Mr. May said: "For a long time now, Seth Cooper has played an important role in helping the Free State Foundation secure its reputation as the leading free market-oriented think tank in the areas in which it works. While also doing other work as well, our primary focus is communications and Internet law and policy and intellectual property. I expect that in his new role, Seth's contribution will be even more instrumental than it has been in maintaining FSF's leadership position in the think tank world."
Commenting on his new role, Mr. Cooper said: "A good part of my professional career has now been spent working at the Free State Foundation. Throughout my time at FSF, I have been grateful for the opportunity to work at an institution that not only demands work products of uniformly high-quality and intellectual integrity, but also adheres consistently to FSF's free market-oriented, property rights-protective, and rule of law principles. In my new role as Director of Policy Studies, I look forward with enthusiasm to contributing even more to FSF's ongoing success."
