Students for self-plagiarism?

An article by Anthony Siino in the Orion (of Chico State University) describes a discussion between students (saying self-plagiarism is all right) and faculty (saying it isn't):

Toward the end, a heated discussion on the boundaries of self-plagiarism began as students, who were defending the re-use of essays, became angry when staff and faculty dismissed their arguments.

One goes back to the Wendler matter at SIU, wherein the university found "no problem" with self-plagiarism.

In the world of patent law, one has the concept of obviousness-type double-patenting, and the remedy of the terminal disclaimer.
