Thread Name: plagiarism dilemma
Subject: RE: plagiarism dilemma
A couple of year ago, I wrote a parody on a famous seasonal song and was amazed to discover that a similar parody had been written over 10 years ago. What was even more surprising was that half of our parody lyrics and rhymes were very similar. Fwiw, I had never heard the first parody before. Nowadays, when I sing my version, I acknowledge the existence original parody. I think that's only fair.
