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.
