Pirates are so cute!

My friend Jody Rosen has a piece up on Slate on how someone told him that a small Texas alt-weekly had pirated his piece on Jimmy Buffett. Jody looked into it and found that for many years’ worth of archives, the entire paper may have been plagiarized from several sources. Made possible by internet trolling, the plagiarists did themselves in by leaving the evidence of their piracy online.

Will be curious to see the outcome of all this. Already the alt-weekly has taken its entire archive offline.
