New Media Rights has been busy! Here's what we have been up to...
New Media Rights receives grant from the California Consumer Protection Foundation
New Media Rights is thrilled to announce that our advocacy efforts have been generously funded with a $50,000 grant from the California Consumer Protection Foundation. We need innovative foundations like the the California Consumer Protection Foundation and organizations like New Media Rights to take a leadership role now to ensure that the growing demand for advocacy services for digital creators is met.
New Media Rights Submits Comments to CPUC Discouraging AT&T Merger
New Media Rights and its affiliates Utility Consumers' Action Network and Privacy Rights Clearinghouse recently filed Reply Comments to the California Public Utilities Commission's investigation into the AT&T/T-mobile merger. After reviewing the evidence, we're more convinced than ever that the CPUC should recommend denial of the merger.
The fight against the merger recently got more heated. At the end of August, the Justice Department filed suit to block the merger because of "anti-competitive concerns." Just like NMR, the Justice Department argues the merger would "remove a significant competitive force" in the majority of the top 100 U.S. wireless markets.
NMR will be at the Media Law in the Digital Age conference on October 22nd at Kennesaw State University in Atlanta, GA. The event will start at 8:30AM with sessions all day until 5:00PM
NMR Will Be Exhibiting at Blogworld in Los Angeles in November
NMR will be exhibiting at the BlogWorld convention on Friday, Nov. 4th and Saturday, Nov. 5th at the Los Angeles Convention Center. We were able to give a lot of great one-to-one assistance at our booth last year, and hope that the demand is even higher this year. For attendees who'd like to schedule a time to get into contact with us, drop us a line at email@example.com. For members of the press who want to meet up with us but don't have passes, free press registration is still open.
Ways to get involved with NMR without getting out of your chair!
