Indispensable media site Regret the Error has posted their review of 2010 in plagiarism. Turns out February was the high point of content theft.

The one thing they left out—and I can't really blame them, as they seem to only cover legitimate news outlets—is the Cooks Source plagiarism scandal from last month. But that was a particularly notable case of plagiarism because Cooks Source is probably the last of a dying breed; I bet decades ago, before the internet, there were a lot of tiny regional magazines that gleefully lifted from other sources without ever getting caught.
