Real life case #1

Vladimir Putin was accused of plagiarism by Brookings Institution, who claim that he stole chunks of words from a management text written and published by the university 20 years earlier. Putin defended himself and said that he had written all the work himself and that he in fact did not plagiarize. A lady in the industry looked over the disertation in economics peice and saw that in fact he did give a bibliography, to the authors, and artists that he had used articles and graphs from. Putin is not guilty of plagiarism after all since he gave the credit to the authors.

Real life case #2
