Raymond Keene - Allegations of Plagiarism

Allegations of Plagiarism

John Donaldson accused Keene of committing plagiarism in The Complete Book of Gambits (Batsford, 1992). Donaldson wrote "Just how blatant was the plagiarism? Virtually every word and variation in the four and a half pages devoted to Lisitsin's Gambit in Keene's book was stolen." After Keene refused to pay Donaldson a requested $200 for the use of his material, Keene's American publisher Henry Holt and Company ended up paying Donaldson $3000.

Keene has been accused of plagiarising a column by Edward Winter for a piece published in The Spectator and subsequently on the website Chessville. More than a third of the article was taken directly from Winter's column.

Famous quotes containing the word plagiarism:

    Ideas improve. The meaning of words participates in the improvement. Plagiarism is necessary. Progress implies it. It embraces an author’s phrase, makes use of his expressions, erases a false idea, and replaces it with the right idea.
    Guy Debord (b. 1931)
