President Barack Obama has said he plans to nominate Internet policy expert Maureen Ohlhausen to replace Commissioner William Kovacic at the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Ohlhausen is currently a partner in law firm Wilkinson Barker Knauer's privacy, data protection and cybersecurity practice, reports The Washington Post. From 2004 to 2008, she served as a director in the FTC's Office of Policy Planning. Ohlhausen worked on an Internet task force during that time, exploring issues surrounding e-commerce and marketing.
