UPDATE: Voting for SXSW is now closed. Thank you so much for your votes!
New Media Rights wants to teach you how to “Stand Up To Content Bullies, Know Your Copy Rights” at SXSW Interactive this year. We know copyright laws are complicated, and they're often the reason why your videos, mobile apps, and other content may get taken down. "Fair use" is complicated, but it's often the reason you can get your content back up. Our panel will teach real-world best practices to use the law, Youtube's rules, and practical steps to fight back against content bullies.
Not only will we provide SXSW audiences with a great best practices but pop culture hacker Jonathan Mcintosh will join us as our special guest creator. You might remember Jonathan from when we helped him get his video Buffy vs Edward: Twilight Remixed put back up on YouTube after it was taken down by content bullies. And really, who better to talk about standing up to content bullies than someone who's actually done it and won!
But we can’t get to SXSW without your support! A public vote accounts for 30% of the decision making process at SXSW so we need your vote! Please vote for NMR’s panel here. And feel free to share our panel with your friends too, every vote counts!
