We're attorneys who help creators, startups, and non-profit organizations diffuse privacy-related ticking time bombs before they explode into legal issues.
Projects often have to choose between either (a) having money to create and launch the project or (b) spending the $1000’s or $10,000’s for lawyers and consultants required to vet their privacy practices and draft their privacy policies. The average hourly rate of attorneys working in IP, privacy, and media law is $300-500 an hour.
Privacy compliance is seen as an expensive luxury compared to customer acquisition (for businesses), launch (for app developers), or serving their communities (for nonprofits). This is why these projects choose to “roll the dice” by forgoing privacy audits until it is within their budgets. But for most organizations though, it will never be in their discretionary budget.
This is the conundrum many projects face that sets the stage for the privacy lawsuits that ruin companies and the employees who work for them. It’s this “roll of the dice” leads to the 100,000’s of frustrated consumers each year who have no other remedy but to file these lawsuits who may have suffered harms that money can’t ever make whole.
That's why with our free, nominal fee, and reduced fee legal services, New Media Rights has been providing an affordable alternative to projects to get the privacy compliance consultations they need to prevent privacy violations and lawsuits before they happen.
Each year, New Media Rights responds to 500+ requests for pro-bono and reduced fee legal services. Many requests are from
(a) consumers dealing with privacy violations or
(b) businesses/non-profits/creators attempting to understand and avoid violating user privacy in their projects.
