Jason Berman and Hilary Rosen, two former leaders of the Recording Industry Association of America, have re-united to launch a new partnership, Berman Rosen Global Strategies.

Unveiled today (Feb. 2), the new company will "focus on intellectual property protection, digital media technology and distribution, international trade issues and anti-piracy strategies and the communications and public affairs issues related to this marketplace."

In a statement, Berman said, "We can help guide businesses in the entertainment space on a variety of important issues such as licensing, public policy and anti-piracy tactics, both in the U.S. and internationally."

"We have a unique combination of knowledge and experience," added Rosen.

Rosen served for 17 years at the RIAA, first as president then as chairman and chief executive officer. She stepped down in 2003. Under her leadership, the RIAA was involved in shaping up new legislation for the digital age and during her term, she led a number of anti-piracy efforts, including lawsuits against Internet file-sharing services Napster and Kazaa.

Berman was Rosen's predecessor at the RIAA. He served as president of the trade body from 1987 and as chairman from 1992. In 1997, he was appointed special counselor for trade by President Bill Clinton. In 1998, he relocated to London to serve as the first full-time appointed chairman of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry. He moved back to the U.S. in 2005 after three terms at the helm of the IFPI. He recently joined the board of directors of digital service Loudeye.

Berman Rosen Global Strategies will have offices in Washington, D.C. and New York. The company will be affiliated with Public Strategies, Inc., a business advisory firm with offices in New York, Washington, D.C. and 11 other cities.
