"Lines on Plagiarism Blur for Students in the Digital Age" -

This is a further reflection of one of the problems that the newspaper business has created for itself. Instead of assiduously defending its copyright in content, newspapers have allowed vast hordes of people to take that content and use it for their own purposes without compensation or control. It started largely with the copy machine and now has expanded geometrically with the the internet.

I don't know if it is too late for newspapers to turn this around, but they show no inclination to do so.
