One of my best friends has turned in a academic paper that had been plagiarized. I have contacted the author of the work that was plagiarized in a hope that he would be fogriving and would express written consent that my friend is allowed to use the original author's work without citation. My question is two-fold: 1. If the author does authorize my friend to use the work, hs she broken any copyright laws? 2. If not, what would my friend need to get from the author in order to establish that no copyright laws had been broken?
