New Zealand student appeals plagiarism finding

nzherald reports that Victoria University found that Brittany Bell deliberately tried to pass off as her own the work of others, including an award-winning Spanish architect, by using images from the internet. The decision was later upheld by the university's appeals committee and Bell is now appealing to the High Court in Wellington.

Part of the defense is that the majority of the images used were exterior views, but Bell's work was on interior design.
Hmmm, if you steal enough irrelevant stuff, that justifies stealing the relevant stuff???
