  1. It’s wrong, wrong, wrong.
  2. It will not set you apart from your competitors.
  3. It will appear as if you do not know how to create your own original content

It’s wrong

You know copying someone else’s stuff is wrong on a moral and ethical level. Just don’t do it. That’s all I have to say about that point.

It will not set you apart

The whole point of creating educational video is to show that you are different. If you try and copy someone else’s content, then, when someone does a search for information about that topic, they will be faced with you and your competitors’ content.

Your consumer will then have to make the difficult choice of trying to decide who has the right information to help them. If you have made the grave error of copying an attorney’s content, you have done yourself and your competitor a disservice by not allowing your consumer to be able to make an easy distinction between the two of you.

Think for yourself

Lastly, by copying someone else’s content you establish yourself as someone who is unable to think for yourself and come up with original content. That means that you cannot distinguish yourself and must rely on what other people have done.

Do not use content from someone else. You must create your own video content, in your own words. It needs to be original. It needs to come from your heart. Copying someone’s content is wrong on so many levels.

Just think how miserable you will feel when you get that certified letter from the attorney whose content you have copied, demanding that you remove your material. You don’t want to go there.

The better practice it’s to create content on your own that viewers want and need to see.

If you are devoting the time and resources to create video content, then you can certainly come up with your own original ideas. You’re a smart attorney. If you’re going to invest the time, energy and resources to create content people want to watch, make sure it’s your own. It’s that simple.

I think that video is the future and you’re looking 5 years down the road, I think that the importance of television and radio are going to diminish and the importance of internet is going to rise. I think that anybody seeking to get a competitive advantage in their market needs to take the initiative and work on that now. And this is an opportunity to get in ahead of the curve and gain a competitive advantage.
