The Miller's Tale

For any who missed it, the people at Canon Press have released a statement on the recent plagiarism issues. It should reassure the True Believers, provide fodder for those interested in researching the interconnections of personalities and publishing (but please remember -- do not use an uncredited assistant in doing such. See esp. Point 4), and leave anyone surprised by its stated outcome rather vulnerable to being sold the Brooklyn Bridge by some guy in a pub. Rachel Miller responds here, with a combined lesson on Basic Research Methods and Plagiarism 101.
