One comment on “Is It Plagiarism If You Steal From Yourself? Sorkinisms, Part II

  1. Yes, it is possible. It depends who owns it. The creator will often sell the copyrights of a work to a company, and then gooes on to create something else, plagiarizing himself. I have no doubt who’s side I’d be on in a conflict like that: the creator. The way corporations manage and exploit copyrights, trade marks, patents and other IP these days is a huge detriment to creativity, which is opposite to the original spirit of the law. But if it is about fans being angry because someone is repeating their previous themes, who cares.
