Lying By Misleading Is Still Lying.
Random House states that Olsson, "did not ultimately draw a conclusion of substantial similarity."
That is a deliberate, knowingly false statement. It is UNtrue, and the Random House lawyers KNEW it was a lie when they wrote it. Are there not ethical and legal prohibitions from knowingly making false statements in a legal document?
Olsson most certainly DID reach that conclusion.
Indeed, Olsson expressed his expert opinion that this was "the worst case of in your face plagiarism" he had ever seen.
Perhaps that is why Random House engaged in yet another dishonesty and tried to make it seem as if I was the source of the "blatant plagiarism" post. (see previous quote).
Again, please ask yourself why -- if their case is as good as they assert -- the Random House lawyers have to skulk through the muck of dishonesty.
