StreamCast hires attorney, lobbyist

StreamCast Networks, which distributes the popular Morpheus file-swapping software, has hired a new attorney, lobbyist and public relations firm to shore up its legal fight against the record and movie industries. The company's former attorney, who had a history of successfully fighting the record industry on technology issues, quit last month after StreamCast said it couldn't afford his legal bills. The new firm, Brobeck Phleger & Harrison, has considerable experience with intellectual property issues. StreamCast also hired lobbyist Ellen Stroud, who previously worked with Silicon Valley political organization TechNet and Rep. Bob Goodlatte, R-Va.
