    Would that be plagiarism?


    Plagiarism. Noun.

    An act or instance of using or closely imitating the language and thoughts of another author without authorization and the representation of that author’s work as one’s own, as by not crediting the original author.

    I would say no. If you or I did it, then yes. However, since a (presumably unaware) monkey is doing it via random processing, then it would be (IMHO) akin to an independent composition.

    Not if shakespeare stole their bananas.


    It would still be just as bad


    Not if they copy the title page along with it.

    It would still be just as bad

    It would be infinitely worse.


    I am a Simian. Hath not a Simian eyes? Hath not a Simian hands,

    organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with the same

    food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases,

    heal’d by the same means, warm’d and cool’d by the same winter

    and summer, as a human is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If

    you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die?

    And if you wrong us, do we not revenge? If we are like you in the

    rest, we will resemble you in that.


    Copying a Tzadik & aspiring to his ways is a wonderful thing:- Needless to say, Shakespeare was a big Tzadik, since he died on his 52nd birthday, and thus was Mashlim his year.
