About the Organization
New Media Rights provides provides preventative and transactional services on hundreds of matters each year. They are also known for their work against content bullying. Along with direct, one-to-one legal services, New Media Rights turns what they learn into hundreds of freely available videos and written legal education guides for creators and consumers.
By using their knowledge to create open source learning tools, New Media Rights spreads its knowledge to all who need it. They also hold live discussions on specific topics such as 3D printing legality. This is a truly maker philosophy.
New Media Rights provides strong, non legalese, openly licensed educational materials based on the actual issues they encounter with clients. They flip the normal law firm model on its head, using what we learn from clients to create public education resources, instead of holding that information close to their chest and charging for it.
