Not Sorry Enough

The publisher of the plagiarized book doesn't accept Viswanathan's apology. Two interesting nuggets in this article. First, the publisher calls Viswanathan's copying "literary identity theft," which as far as I can tell from a Lexis search isn't a cause of action. Perhaps the publisher was simply being hyperbolic. Second, the plagiarized author, McCafferty, is apparently "not sleeping, not eating." Hints of an emotional distress claim? We shall see.
