Recently I’ve heard a couple stories about lawyers who think they should just grab copy from a competitor’s website and post it to their own site. Not only is this illegal, its stupid from a marketing sense. You need to convey to potential clients what makes you stand out, not what makes you the same as your competitors.
But this story is completely a different animal. A Florida personal injury attorney did a Google search on his firm’s website and pulled up a British law firm website which was identical except for swapping out dollars for pounds and the Florida address for a British one. The Florida firm is suing Go-Daddy.com and the unknown duplicater.
