Professorial Pilfering

A shocking confession from today's PostSecret:

Designer confession

Fashion design students would have no legal recourse, of course -- but is there no honor in the school's honor code?  (For a contrasting case from another creative medium, check out Shine v. Childs, 382 F.Supp.  2d. 602 (2005), in which a distinguished jury member visiting the Yale School of Architecture allegedly "borrowed" a student's design for an early version of the Freedom Tower at the WTC site, and the court refused to grant summary judgment.) 

Let's hope the professorial plagiarist at least pays with "A's."
