The punishable perils of plagiarism - Melissa Huseman D'Annunzio

Fighting plagiarism is serious business. From brainchild-snatching to wholly quotables, plagiarists have plenty of wily ways to pass others' work off as their own -- and all of them are threats to original thinking. Melissa Huseman D'Annunzio imagines what would happen if a Department of Plagiarism Investigation were on the case.

Lesson by Melissa Huseman D'Annunzio, animation by Hache Rodriguez.
