Despite this author’s reliance on EPMO, the work represented here is quite interesting. The author is basically issuing a challenge to our academic notions of plagiarism. In a digital work where it is so easy to COPY, and where the copy is not degraded from the original in any way, maybe we should put aside notions of “ownership” and “acclaim” and instead embrace the COPY and fashion a new work from the foundation provided. COPY FREELY and COPY OFTEN. GNU-COPYLEFT and Wikipedia as the epitome of this truly post-modern ethic! Bravo Dr. Dornsife.
