"[Writing] is theft", Ctd

At 1 hour 17 minutes Christopher Hitchens explains that plagiarism and using other peoples words is "inevitable".

Complimentary analysis can be read in an article entitled 'Makers and Takers: Art and the Appropriation of Ideas'.

Also of important note is the piece written by Christopher Hitchens in his book 'Unacknowledged Legislation: Writers in the Public Sphere' where he wrote a chapter entitled, 'In Defence of Plagiarism'.

And in George Orwell's essay on Charles Dickens entitled simply,'Charles Dickens' Orwell said:
"Dickens is one of those writers who are well worth stealing."
