Cut and Paste Plagiarism

Every writer, student and scholar is supposed to give credit, where credit's due, but it's easier and easier to steal. The Internet gives everyone access to enormous amounts of material, and reproduction is a lot faster than research. Guests on the program discuss the plague of plagiarism.

Guests:

Donald McCabe, professor of management and global business at Rutgers Business School; founding president of the Center for Academic Integrity, at Duke University

John Barrie, CEO and Creator of Turnitin.com, a plagiarism detection software program
