As I said, I have found the paper in many already-published versions,
which are clearly public. So its just an additional thing that I have an
n+1th version which is confidental. I might have found the self-plagiarism
also accidentaly, just by browsing the web. I think it's not against any
law if I say: type the following sentence in google and compare the abstracts of the
papers that come up.
