New Media Rights has been busy helping creators and internet users all Spring, and we have alot to share about what we've accomplished! We're preparing to testify in front of the Copyright Office on behalf of remix artists. We've filed comments with the FCC criticizing the BART wireless phone shutdown in San Francisco.

Please stay tuned for some big news regarding the future of New Media Rights that we'll be announcing in the next few weeks.
New Media Rights filed comments April 30 with the Federal Communications Commission regarding intentional interruption of wireless services. This follows the August 2011 incident where BART chose to interrupt wireless services at its stations. This incident raised serious concerns regarding the authority of governmental agencies and other non-carrier third parties to disrupt wireless networks. The FCC opened a regulatory proceeding to review the issue.
