Plagiarism for $$

It looks like the fanfic plagiarists are taking it up to the next level. elisa_rolle reviews romantic fiction in her journal and recently got some comments which indicate that one of the books she's reviewed was originally posted as Star Trek slashfic.

It's bad enough when some idiot plagiarist thinks she/he can steal someone else's story and post it in public without anyone noticing. You'd think that by now they would've figured out that even changing the names to make the story fit (sort of [eyeroll]) another fandom doesn't mean no one will notice the theft. But now at least one person has apparently decided that praise and hugs and e-cookies aren't enough -- they want actual money for their stolen goods. :/
