I expect by now most of you have heard about the latest case of plagiarism in which the victim was Liz Fielding - read what happened to her at her blog. Here are links to posts by Diane and Womag about it too.
I just do not understand – at all – what someone gets from stealing someone else’s work. What possible feeling can anyone take away from doing something like this?
And why do they think they can get away with it?
It is very true that e-publishing and the internet makes it easier for things like this to happen. But it also - thankfully - makes it easier for people to be caught and brought to book as you will see from Diane's post!
