A critical resource for social impact filmmakers

In the last year, New Media Rights has seen a drastic influx of filmmakers and nonprofits seeking legal advice related to their social impact films and online videos. 
 
New Media Rights is working to ensure those making social impact films have the legal services they need to bring their stories to the public with confidence in the face of intimidation from powerful interests. We’ve helped with important social impact films that address gender and racial discriminationenvironmental degradationpublic health issues, gun violence, and human trafficking, to name a few.

Our newest medium: Virtual Reality

To advise cutting edge technology clients, we have to make sure to learn our client's business and technology. Here, clinic student Maresa Martin tries out virtual reality while other clinic students look on. New Media Rights is taking on its first clients with virtual reality projects this fall. Thanks to student Emory Roane for setting up and facilitating this demonstration!

    Teri Karobonik

A fond farewell!

Earlier this year we wished a fond farewell to Staff Attorney Teri Karobonik! Teri was a wonderful colleague, stellar attorney and an excellent mentor to our students since June 2013. During her time at New Media Rights she not only helped us run more efficiently so we could help more people than ever before but was also a driving force behind many of our new educational resources including our book. A big thank you to Teri and best wishes in her future endeavors in the Bay Area and at her new position at Twitter!
