Comments on Star Letter in this month's WM
Did any of you read this letter about the writing student who had her story plan/ideas 'stolen' by a writing tutor?
If it did happen in the way she explained it, then in my view the tutor has badly abused her position. The tutor's assertion that 'there is no copyright in ideas', is true in the legal sense, but surely there is an ethics/morality issue. A pity the writer didn't feel able to name the tutor so I could be sure of not going on any of her courses!
What do others think?
