In an earlier posting in this particular series, I noted that:
"The rules that journals apply to submissions, which we are all aware of, are based on a condition which all journals wisely state in their submission policy, that is, that the material has not been submitted for publication in any other peer-review journal, past or present. Sending plagiarized material to a peer-review journal clearly violates that trust and automatically voids any considerations of confidentiality."
To me, this sounds like the same thing that Dr. Pastore is saying - that is, that any privilege or innocence on the plagiarist's part is lost when they misrepresent the originality of the work. - Lance Nizami PhD
