The One About the Plagiarism

The One About the Plagiarism | Book News | Scoop.it

On June 26, 2013, I received email from a reader that included words no author ever wants to hear: "possible plagiarism." I've received many messages like this, however - most because another author or publishing house or hair coloring company used a cover photo similar to (or the same as) Easy's cover photo, and others because someone wrote a story eerily similar to Easy. Most of these do not constitute plagiarism. Some of these may in fact be plagiarism... but plagiarism is an ethical sin. Copyright infringement, on the other hand, is a legal offense.

How does a filmmaker adapt Markus Zusak’s bestseller The Book Thief (Knopf, 2005), written in the candid and empathetic point of view of Death? Following a fundamental rule, director Brian Percival decides to show not tell, and keeps the voice-over to a minimum. In fact, Death disappears for most of the first half.
