Ideas. How has our society come to think we can put a price tag on them and when does using the idea of another become theft?

This work permits the exploration of many facets of plagiarism and the theft of intellectual property. The four-part Introduction summarizes and dissects the many currents of the present situation (late 1997). It includes definitions, cases, the underlying sense of "follow the money" that seems to permeate this ethereal realm, and the means used to prove or disprove the accusations of misconduct.
