    The maxim “Never read the youtube comments” apply here. I am amazed at the people that see the blatant similarities and are still OK with the intellectual theft. A couple are aboout the message and most are basically Generation Napster: As long as I can get it for free, f*** your copyright.

    I have had many students tell me that they think school is an outdated concept, because if they want to know something they can simply Google it. I constantly catch them plagiarizing and cheating, and they don’t think it is wrong.

    So it makes sense that the trolls fight among themselves for the scraps the king is willing to drop on them.
