Tricks Of The Trade: Do's & Don'ts: Copying Someone elses' content is a big DON'T!

I've been seeing it happen more & more! The sad truth is, there are people out there that are either not thinking about the consequences of their actions, they don't care, or they're not even thinking! I've experienced it on a personal level, time and time again, which comes with the territory I suppose of being a successful, professional, popular activist, actress, artist, producer, writer & more! Reality is, people will always try to copy what is successful. You see it happen especially with movies, music, art, fashion. Ever since I was a child, I've seen people "jumping on the band wagon" or riding on the coat tails of other people's work! Just because people are out there doing it, does not make it OK!  When you copy someone's being or brand (content, writing, art, ideas) and try to claim it as your own... especially when the person you are copying has already established their brand in the entertainment industry, you look really bad! The bottom line is, copying someone else's content from their websites or anywhere else is not only stealing, it makes you look desperate, unprofessional & will hurt you in the end! To learn more about the Do's & Dont's on having a professional career in the entertainment industry, join us on the "Tricks Of The Trade" panel happening at San Diego Comic Con July 19th in Room 2 from 5:30-7:00pm
