It's ok at Harvard, if you're not Kaavya

What happens when you get caught lifting passages, wholesale, from someone else's book? What if the book you're borrowing from is universally discredited by serious scholars?

If you're Harvard Law School Professor Alan Dershowitz, nothing much happens. You get exonerated by your university, and life goes on.

And you get to successfully lobby against tenure for the man who exposed your plagiarism.

It must be good to be Alan Dershowitz.
