(The above screenshot is a continuation of the previous one. Here, we see unsuspecting people praising Phrank Shaibu for possessing stolen intellectual property. You can also see him insulting a commenter who asked for clarification on what he posted. Also see below screenshots of Phrank Shaibu the plagiarist being praised to high heavens by an unsuspecting fan on account of his unearned reputation as a grammarian. See his response in the third screen.)
As the US Supreme Court ruled years ago, ideas and facts are not copyrightable; only their presentation is. Besides, as Daniel M. Feeney and Bradley L. Cohn point out in their article titled, “You Wrote It, But Who Owns It? An Overview of Copyright Law, “copyright law recognizes what is called a de minimis defense. This defense permits, in effect, copying material that is quantitatively and qualitatively insignificant in relation to the copied work as a whole.” This is different from Phrank Shaibu who, as you saw in the screenshots, copied everything I’d written, which he has been presenting as his on several platforms.
Of course, copyright and plagiarism are different but they are similar in many respects because they are both concerned with protecting the presentation of authors’ original thoughts and ideas.
I would never have responded to Silas Ejiofoh’s laughable ignorance had the compulsively plagiarizing and pathologically lying Phrank Shaibu not caused his minions to push it to divert attention from his intellectual theft—and to even lie that my university is probing me because of it.
