We launched Legally Content a month or two ago as an experiment to sell legal content in a digital format. We began with Nicky Campbell's DIY Credit Repair Toolkit and started adding generic legal terms for sale. My intention was to facilitate more open access to the law by small businesses and consumers who can't afford legal services. I'm passionate about making the law more accessible, in general, and launched Legally Content and another ambitious project, the OpenLaw Project, with this in mind.
Unfortunately we didn't see the sort of sustainable interest in Legally Content we hoped for so I've decided to take Legally Content offline and rather focus on making legal content more readily accessible to our clients using some of of the ideas that have informed the Legally Content model. What this means is that we are going to close the online store and probably take the site offline in the next few days.
2013 has gotten off to a terrific start and I noticed my tendency to explore almost all my ideas and inspirations went into overdrive. Splitting my attention across multiple businesses and projects doesn't work and will only compromise the great work we want to do for our clients in Jacobson Attorneys and Web•Tech•Law this year (we have some awesome ideas which we are working on, many of which draw on ideas we had for Legally Content and OpenLaw Project). Instead, I opted to be a little ruthless about cutting back the projects which distract us from where we would rather focus our efforts and this means Legally Content is going back into storage.
