The Conference Board of Canada's Deceptive, Plagiarized Digital Economy Report

Michael Geist, Weblog, May 25, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Michael Geist - who reads all this stuff and was in a good position to spot it - documents what is very apparently a plagiarized report produced by the Conference Board of Canada in an effort to support the U.S. copyright lobby. "For Stephen Toope, President of UBC, and Indira V. Samarasekera, President of the University of Alberta, both members of the Conference Board of Canada board: Do they condone or support the use of plagiarism in this report? Will they ask the Conference Board of Canada to review this report and to retract it?" Update - the Conference Board stands by its report.
