define plagiarism

Noun:
The practice of taking someone else's work or ideas and passing them off as one's own. (But seems to be okay in some circles, and for certain peeps!)

via TheVerge.com: Pogomix shows you how to mashup TV and movie clips into music

Pogo Nick Berke

Nick Berke of Pogomix has decided to share his method of ripping sounds from movies and TV shows and blending them together to create "mashup" remixes. Berke's process involves extracting audio samples from various media using Adobe Audition, then adding them to an arrangement in Ableton...

OK for Berke, but apparently NOT for Jonah Lehrer...

Thou shalt not steal from thyself.
Hmmm.
I would imagine it is difficult to be fresh and new and entertaining 24/7.
There's probably more intellectual "recycling" going on than we realize!

"If we could download his consciousness and pour it into a paper cup, what great (if any) knowledge or style might we distill?" ~ Dave Lucas

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
