How the Internet lets people Copy each other When you set up a new account on social media, recommendation pages offer two things: hot girls and advice on how to steal other people's ideas. The reason for the girls is self-evident. The latter, however, reveals a darker side to the human environment. Tips on how to quickly become popular on social media, including 'How to get 1,000 followers in a Week' and '10 video ideas for everyone'. One suggested simply: "Go to someone else's page and copy. You don't have to copy everything, but you can get pretty close."

Plagiarism has plagued the Internet for as long as it has existed. Brandon Kerner is used to his work being used as material. About once a week, he gets requests from producers who want to interview him for a documentary or adapt his book for a film or podcast. At the beginning of the year, something bad happened. Someone posted a podcast based on an exclusive he had spent nine years writing for The Atlantic, without mentioning the source material. "This has become commonplace in an environment where podcasting has exploded," Kellner says.

Films, music and literature enjoy strong legal protection. Kellner's story in The Atlantic is protected by law, but not worth the time and expense of a lawsuit. Yet the definition of intellectual property is also becoming increasingly blurred. A dance routine, a recipe, a yoga pose, for example, cannot be copyrighted. This means that in some industries, social and professional norms determine your reputation when intellectual property laws can only do so much.
