All of us at Shami Messinger PLLC stand in solidarity with the millions of Americans calling for justice in the death of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and countless others who have suffered at the hands of fundamental racial injustice in our society.
The source of creator’s rights—inventors, artists, entrepreneurs—is rooted in the values of human rights, human dignity, justice, and equality. It is manifest in the belief that creators should benefit both financially and otherwise from their work. The sad truth is that many creators are silenced or otherwise prevented from creating or enjoying the bounty of their creations.
At this time, when it is crucial for anyone who believes in the promise of America to speak out in the name of justice and against systemic racism and every form of discrimination, we are proud to stand in support of the African American community, those peacefully calling for justice for George Floyd, and all who are working to set right the oppression of all marginalized people. We are here to serve you.
