Lawyer video downloads will be free

As with lawyer blogs, lawyers will become big producers of Internet video. Though some lawyers want to charge for downloads of educational legal videos, they’d be bucking how the Internet works.

Further support of content being free comes from Monday’s New York Times reporting that ‘Free Content Dominates Video Downloads

More than four times as many households downloaded videos from file-sharing networks as they did from centralized services like iTunes in the third quarter of 2006.

Downloads from file-sharing networks are generally free, and have long occurred outside the control of copyright holders. The cost of for-pay downloads, about 90 percent of which go through iTunes, generally includes a licensing fee.

I’m not saying lawyers will forgo copyright protection of their videos, just that their videos will be available for free downloading.
