Essjay's "Ethos": Rethinking Textual Origins and Intellectual Property
Brown, James J., Jr.
College Composition and Communication, v61 n1 pW238-W258 Sep 2009
Discussions of intellectual property are often the focus of rhetoric and composition research, and the question of textual origins grounds these discussions. Through an examination of Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia anyone can edit, this essay addresses disciplinary concerns about textual origins and intellectual property through a discussion of situated and constructed "ethos." (Contains 8 notes.)
