Warren Lecture Series - Nancy Sims (Mar 6, 2020)

"Plagiarism, Plagiarisma, Plagiarmania" Citation, credit, authorship, ownership—at first pass most of these seem like fairly straightforward topics. But beyond a cursory look, these issues are rich and complex, with surprising and subtle nuances across academic disciplines, creative communities, cultural groups, and legal jurisdictions. Technologies intended to address concerns in these areas often fail on numerous edge cases, although they are also sometimes useful.
