Asking because copying choreo being the main conflict in Bring It On was stupid to me. I frankly don’t like to copy. It takes all the fun out of choreo. Plus it’s almost impossible to cut/paste a chunk of choreo from one team to another given all the fluctuating variables like team size and skill level that would need align if you’re going to perfectly replicate something. Which they usually don’t. That said, although it might be tacky to copy, there’s no rule against it. And judges don’t care who came up with it first, they just care who did it best. This assumes they even realise that copying took place as they score anywhere from a dozen to a hundred teams in an afternoon. Did that ring hollow to anyone else? I remember feeling let down when it was revealed that that was the BIG DEAL conflict in the movie. Like of all the other conflicts that actually exist in cheer — injuries, harassment, funding, etc. — they picked one that doesn’t even really exist.
