Plagiarism, or how Edison got outsourced to India

Earlier in 2006, I wrote an article for Intellectual Property Today entitled "Edison as a Patent Troll?" which was supposed to be published in the April 2006 issue of Intellectual Property Today. It wasn't published. To get some information out (relevant to among other things current debate about proposed rules changes for continuing applications), I placed some of the content on ezines, with the title:
Edison as a Patent Troll, or Where is California Going in Stem Cell Research?

I learned today that Edison as a Patent Troll, or Where is California Going in Stem Cell Research? had made its way to onlypunjab with authorship attributed to Annie-Kaszina.

Perhaps this is a new variant on "How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild, and Got a Life" by Kaavya Viswanathan.

One notes that the plagiarism business at Ohio University involving certain masters theses in the mechanical engineering department has received a lot more publicity than did the incidents involving Viswanathan or Laurence Tribe or Harvard.

Hi,

It is sad to see such cases of Plagiarism, specially in India. Intellectual Property should be respected in India.

Maybe, the awareness for IP is very low even though India is providing services for IP.(I am also working in IP domain)

Hope the situation changes. Further, I believe that India lacks the high profile law cases regarding IPR. Once such cases happens, the awareness for respecting others IP will grow automatically.
