We are New Media Rights, a nonprofit program that provides pro-bono (free) and low cost legal services to independent online creators and startups whose projects require specialized internet, intellectual property, privacy and media law expertise. We are one of the mid-level grantees, and we were specifically given the grant to help other Grant for the Web grantees with the legal aspects of your projects should you be interested in talking to an attorney about legal issues.
We are offering free 1-hour legal consultation sessions for Grant for the Web recipients and others who are involved in Web Monetization projects. After the consultation, appropriate projects will receive additional free or low-cost legal services. We are licensed attorneys based in California, which means that we might not be able to speak to the specific laws of other states. We also can only advise on US laws.
If you’re based in the US or encountering US legal questions, come talk to our team about your copyright and trademark concerns, contracts, and other legal issues you might encounter working with Web Monetization tech!
Should you need assistance, or are interested in signing up for a free consultation, please contact us via the contact form on our website (https://www.newmediarights.org/about_us/contact_us).
