Alganon Plagiarism Follow-up

The Alganon Forums have a follow-up from Derek Smart over accusations of plagiarism in a press release. Here's part:

So that single referenced line that the PR Sirens used to precede my commentary was chosen as inspiration in order to convey the premise of my quotes that followed. In truth, the reference should either have been reworded or credited and sourced. As I understand it now, that was the original intent; but they failed to make the change in their draft and which was to become the final version that went out on PRWeb. And since Quest Online - like most companies that hire outside PR firms - don't have to fact check press releases, we clearly had no idea what had happened until my inbox started lighting up on Sunday morning.

This was clearly an unintentional oversight and shouldn't even be news; but here we are. Just another glorious day in the gaming industry. It's all about hits and giggles.
