Another Plagiarism Scandal?

The New York Times has an article about the current debate over whether romance novelist Cassie Edwards plagiarized passages in several of her books, and the part that bloggers have played in uncovering these questionable passages. Romance writer Nora Roberts told the Associated Press that by her definition, "[c]opying another's work and passing it as your own equals plagiarism. As a writer, a reader and a victim of plagiarism, I feel very strongly on this issue. I'm not a lawyer, but I can't see it as fair use, or fair anything when one writer takes another's work." Signet, Ms. Edwards' current publisher, says it is reviewing the works that she has in print with the company.
