John Wiley Interscience, the Dozier Internet Law of Academia?

Back in April, I reported (on the 25th and 26th) on an attempt by John Wiley & Sons / Wiley Interscience to prevent a blogger from commenting on the results in an academic article they published.

Apparently, it's a good thing that such comments are made. As reported on Slashdot, pages of a recent Wiley book are plagiarized verbatim from Wikipedia.

Apparently, strategic lawsuits against public participation and plagiarism do go together, after all!

Comments

Quite impressive. I hope my Wikipedia-plagiarizing students don't get any ideas from this.

Funny how the plagiarizers are always the biggest sticklers for fair use.
