Copyright or Right to Copy

A day after Kaavya Viswanathan admitted copying parts of her chick-lit novel, "How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild and Got a Life," from another writer's works, the publisher of the two books she borrowed from called her apology "troubling and disingenuous."

The work in question is published by Little Brown. So while the "intellectual property" lobby is determined to throw violators into jail, they themselves can't even avoid rather blatant theft to exploit a hot market. And, again, this is an example of the benefits society is supposed to gain from granting broad copyright protections - plagiarized tripe?
