A lot has been on the various blogs I follow about this YA blogger's plagiarism. I have no idea who this blogger is, but it's the fact of the matter. I try my absolute hardest to cite wherever I take a quote, even if it's only a couple words, and even try to cite the links for pictures I search for. I'm not always successful with that but I try.
In the interest of Regency-fying this post, I searched for Regency Plagiarism. Several interesting links popped up, including this one from Regency Era about a Norwegian university's video on plagiarism. It's pretty amusing once you put on the closed captions!
But what I found that really interested me was on Georgette Heyer and Barbara Cartland. Apparently, Ms. Cartland not only plagiarised Ms. Heyer but did so...badly. Georgette Heyer writes Regency--Barbara Cartland does not. I've never read a Barbara Cartland book, but I do think I've seen some of the made-for-TV movies. Nope. Not Regency! (I could be wrong about this, am I?)
