Antievolution morals have a definite direction, towards evil. Thus, it should come as no surprise that plagiarism should be one of the ways that they express that.
ERV has the scoop on a blatant rip-off of an animation produced by Harvard University and XVIVO. ID advocates including William Dembski have been using this animation, stripped of its original narration and credits, as part of lectures that they give. ERV reports Dembski used it in his presentation to Oklahoma University, for which he reportedly received a $10,000 honorarium.
I think Dembski could afford to cough up a bottle of single malt scotch to each of them, and if this proceeds to actual litigation, I suggest to Harvard and XVIVO that they make that part of any settlement offer.
Update: Vic Hutchinson says that the actual honorarium value Dembski received has to be less than $5,000. The $10,000 figure is the total that the sponsoring group was looking to get to defray their complete expenses for the event.<= get_option(\'vc_tag\') ?>> = get_option(\'vc_text_before\') ?> 6000 = get_option(\'vc_human_count_text_many\') ?> = get_option(\'vc_preposition\') ?> 2073 = get_option(\'vc_human_viewers_text_many\') ?> = get_option(\'vc_tag\') ?>>
