  •  Plagarism..? (0+ / 0-)

    While I would be distraut if someone did plagiarize their speech, am I missing something? In the video he says that what he is saying is from the movie Gattaca (one of my favorite movies). Is that still plagiarism?

    •  I think the plagiarism issue (0+ / 0-)

      is from the wikipedia page, not from the movie, so yes, describing the movie as he does isn't plagiarizing the film, but wikipedia.  Since nowhere in the video does he mention wikipedia, it's still plagiarism.
