On plagiarism, internet and otherwise

A blogger got caught passing off the work of other writers as his own, which prompted professional writer/screenwriter Robert J. Avrech to say a few things about people who plagiarize, and the people who shrug it off or even defend it.

If I post a poem or story, I give credit where credit is due and if I don't know who wrote it, I will say so! I don't understand how someone could take someone else's work and call it their own. But, my mind just doesn't work that way. I understand that Jimmy Carter used information for his latest book that did not belong to him and he had no permission to use. People see this and think it's OK for them to do the same.
