Brian L. Frye (Kentucky), A Legal Scholarship Jubilee:
I love plagiarism. Or rather, I love studying plagiarism norms and reflecting on how they illuminate concepts of literary ownership. I have argued that applying academic plagiarism norms to students is unjustified. I have argued that we should teach law students how to plagiarize efficiently. I have authorized people to plagiarize me. And I have commissioned a ghost-written article arguing that academic plagiarism norms are unjustified.
And now, for something completely different, I will transfer my right of attribution in all of my scholarly works to others. I have offered ownership of my right of attribution to anyone who wishes to claim authorship of one of my works. Many of my former works have already been claimed, but many more are still available! The appendix to this article lists all of my works, and indicates which have been claimed. If you would like to be the author of an unclaimed work, I encourage you to write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 145 Woodland Avenue, Lexington, KY 40502, and request the work of your choice. All of the works are free, and first-come, first-served, but one per customer, don’t be greedy!
