New Media Rights Staff Attorney Fellow Teri Karobonik spends her days dealing with issues that didn’t exist, ten years ago. And she’s defending the rights of artists and innovators–often at no cost.
Teri, whom New Media Rights’ website describes as an “awesome lawyer”, helps all kinds of creative people get their work out on the Internet the right way. New Media Rights is a nonprofit, independently funded program of California Western School of Law. Their mission, as stated on their Facebook page, is to “provide non-profit, public interest advocacy at the intersection of law, creativity, and technology.”
Which is very cool stuff, considering that they’re lawyers for the open Internet, providing free or low-cost services to creators and entrepreneurs. New Media Rights also provide a number of free resources for innovators, on their website–including their how-to and legal guides, and more than a hundred fifty videos on their YouTube channel!
And–they’re having a party! This evening, they celebrate having served more than a thousand creators and innovators, all over the world. If you’re in the San Diego area, you’ll find more information here.
Teri talked about her background, some of the new-media issues with which New Media Rights has helped clients, and the services and free resources they offer.
