The New Plagiarism

Jonathan Bailey, Plagiarism Today, May 24, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

At the best of times I am pretty sceptical about accustaions of plagiarism. In this case, where the author depicts a type of (what he considers to be) excess block quoting with attribution to be a new form of plagiarism, I am inclined to side with the numerous critics of the piece. To be sure, there are blogs of the type he describes in our field. But I have never detected any loss of readership or confusion about attribution as a consequence. Most people eventually follow the quotes to their source, so unless your only motivation for blogging is Google Adsense click-throughs, you're probably fine. Via Emma Duke-Williaqms.
