Meg Cabot on Plagiarism

I don't know how many of you have been following the controversy about Kaavya Viswanathan's allegedly plagiarized novel How Opal Mehta Got Kissed, Got Wild and Got In (the library doesn't own it). The author is supposed to have plagiarized passages from books by authors Megan McCafferty, Salman Rushdie, Sophie Kinsella and Meg Cabot. Meg Cabot has a really classy, terrific response to this whole controversy in her blog, which is well worth reading.
