No such thing as originality anyway, just authenticity
Feb 19th, 2010, 7:31am
 
A teenage literary sensation who lifted large parts of her debut hit novel from the Web, without giving credit, says she's justified because "there's no such thing as originality".

For good measure, Helene Hegemann said the plagiarism was justified, because copyright holders they had it coming.

17-year old Hegemann's Axolotl Roadkill, a bildungsroman, was published to critical and commercial acclaim last month. But large chunks of the book were lifted, without credit, from a novel published by a pseudonymous blogger called Airen, whose novel Strobo is also a hedonistic coming of age novel.
