Copier-coller

Here's a fascinating blog if you read French, about a set of plagiarism cases in a French university. "Copier-coller" I'm guessing means "copy and paste." There is a department in this university where dissertations are routinely copied word for word from other sources, with 100% or 80% of the content being plagiarized in the most most blatant way possible. This blog by a French professor is following the action. It's in his own department! Of course, they've threatened legal action against him, but the evidence is overwhelming in this type of plagiarism.
