Radical Media?..... or just more corporate adverts?

A global media company that makes adverts has trademarked the phrase 'radical media' and is threatening legal action against grassroots media groups covering radical politics for using 'radical media' in the title of a conference this October. http://radicalmediaconference.org


 

 

 

 

 

It's corporate globalisation gone mad.
A protest is being held at Radical Media's London office on World Press Freedom Day to tell them 'We make radical media, you make adverts'.

Check out Radical Media's adverts: http://www.radicalmedia.com/
Talk to them on Twitter: @radicalmedia

Protest on Tuesday, May 3 · 5:00pm - 7:00pm
Location Radical Media London office
1 Alfred Mews

If you are involved in radical media work, then consider adding your name to this letter.

Dear friends,
In response to @radical.media's attempts to bully us into changing the 
name of the 2011 "Radical Media Conference" (see www.radicalmediaconference.org), we're sending the letter below to the national press on Monday (2 May) morning for possible publication on the 3rd (World Press Freedom Day). To have your name added as a signatory please e-mail us at rebelliousmediaconference@riseup.net no later than midnight on Sunday (1 May). Please include any institutional info eg. 
"(author, INSERT BOOK TITLE HERE)" or "(INSERT YOUR MEDIA ORGANISATIONS 
NAME HERE)".
Best wishes,

Gabriel
