Legal counsel

Some of the matters handled by the Rust Project (for example, legal policies or DMCA takedowns) require legal counsel to be handled effectively. Mozilla is providing legal counsel for such matters, and this page documents how to access it.

How to request counsel

Team members can email Niko Matsakis (nmatsakis AT mozilla DOT com) with their inquiry, and the request will be forwarded to Mozilla Legal. Due to an internal Mozilla policy, team members won't be CCed in the conversation with the lawyers, but they will receive a summary of the discussion and the outcome after the matter is resolved.
