    Lawyers do a lot of copying. Why charge a client to create a document from scratch when you can draw from many existing sources? In this video, available online with the June 2011 Wisconsin Lawyer, the authors clarify the basic principles of copyright infringement and plagiarism, and advocate for a flexible notion of plagiarism adapted to the needs of the institutions in which lawyers work.
