My colleague Margy keeps a blog for students in a Journalism class she teaches, and just posted about a piece in The Globe and Mail about an author who got nailed for plagiarism, though the admission is only that his book contains "elements [that] . . . closely resemble or are indistinguishable from passages"... I found it interesting that the word plagiarism is only used once in the article - makes it all very soft. Margy's reason for posting was to remind her students why it's important to keep track of your sources!
