PLAGIARISTS, THE GRINCH AND ATTICUS FINCH

"I'm sorry I'm a plagiarist, please don't sue me"

What do the Talmud, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Composer Anthony Kelley and Writer Malcolm Gladwell all have in common?

For one thing, experience (of one kind or another) with plagiarism. For another, they crop up in Bill Heinze's thoughtful essay response to The Chronicle of Higher Education's recent article on plagiarism. Don't miss his intellectual and real links to I/P infringement. (This is the same Chron article that got Volokh Conspiracy blogger Orin Kerr's attention here.)

Mike Fox blogs a friend's thoughts on why timing is everything -- even when you're terminating an employee.

Be it resolved then

...that ye shall run a better law practice in 2005, with Blogger Matt Homann tapping your shoulder. Persistently. Like water torture, this guy. Like a mother who's always right. Resolutions for lawyers:

  • Day 14
  • Day 13
  • Day 12
  • Day 11
  • The whole kit and caboodle here.

At the watercooler

May It Please The Court goes to lawyer movies! Read or listen to Blogger Mike Geoghegan's review of "To Kill a Mockingbird," starring Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch.

Would you like to contribute to J. Craig Williams' blogs, too? Tell him so here.

Professor Eugene Volokh has a holiday gift suggestion for the 1L, 2L or 3L on your list.

One parting thought for the weekend: Since liposuction and implants are legal, Michael Cernovich writes, what's the problem with baseball and steroids? As always, he invites your comments.
