Malcolm Gladwell on plagerism
The New Yorker: Fact

A fascinating article by Malcolm Gladwell in the new issues of the New Yorker (and currently at least available online). I was about to read this in print when I first was pointed to the article by Anil Dash.

In it, Malcolm makes a great and I think rather persuasive, argument about the importance and complexity of the commons in creativity. On the complications and difficulties of art and news and music and other forms of creativity, how they are all built on the fabric of our predecessors, but are also now limited and bound by legal and cultural laws against "copying" or "plagerism".

Great article - I agree with Anil - go read it.
