NMR to speak on Intellectual Property, Copyright, and Fair Use in Media at the 2015 Alliance for Community Media Conference

We're excited to announce that New Media Rights Executive Director Art Neill will be speaking on a panel at the Alliance for Community Media Annual Conference on August 13, in Pasadena, CA from 3:30-5:00pm.

The topic of the panel will be "Intellectual Property, Copyright, and Fair Use in Media."

The panel will be an opportunity to help community media learn about copyright and fair use, and the many ways the law can actually empower their creativity. The panel will also cover how to avoid legal disputes in the first place, and how to move forward if you do face legal threats.

The conference takes place from August 12-14 at the Hilton Pasadena.

Event: Unintended consequences of hyperlocal social apps

Hyperlocal social platforms, like Yik Yack and Whisper,  are hot right now. But when things turn ugly, or they get into the wrong hands, whose responsibility is it? Who foots the bill for the fallout? The founders and developers who didn't foresee the (negative) possibilities? Parents? Teachers? Consumers? Law enforcement?

Staff Attorney Teri Karobonik will join a panel of other experts on Thursday May 14th to discuss these issues and more at CyberHive's StartUp Breakfast; Unintended Consequences:  Who is responsible when hyperlocal social apps get in the wrong hands?

For more information and to RSVP check out theCyberTECH and CyberHive Startup Incubator Meetup page for the event here.
