An Interesting Case Study in Plagiarism

This would be a great blog post to have students read and break apart as we talk about plagiarism, copyright, and the ease with which information can be copied and posted. Richard Byrne, whose blog freetech4teachers I frequently share with colleagues, writes about what he goes through when he discovers that people (or automated feed readers) publish his work with no credit or link back to him.  Underneath all the tools, humans are the ones making the choices. THAT is what we need to convey to our students.

The post itself is great, but so are many of the comments.
