Check Yourself... len() error


So, I'm trying to get through this lesson and I keep getting the error message: Traceback (most recent call last):
File "python", line 6, in
TypeError: object of type 'builtin_function_or_method' has no len()

I have looked up and copied other's coding of the same lesson and it still gives me this message, can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

raw_input("your word")
original = raw_input
if len(original) > 0:
    print original
    print 'empty'


raw_input("your word")
original = raw_input

you should have one raw_input() that stores the value to original.

remember you need a () for raw_input .It asks the users for a input .
