Top 10 Celebrity Plagiarism Accusations

Famous people get caught plagiarizing just like students in universities and your every day worker. Just as it is a serious crime that can get you expelled from your college, plagiarism leaves an ugly stain on the reputation of celebrities as well. People like Melania Trump, Beyoncé, Joe Biden and even Martin Luther King Jr., have been accused of copying other people’s work – though not all people are actually found guilty despite the claims. One of the most common places of plagiarism is within the music industry, where most recently, notable cases have appeared in the hands of Robin Thicke for Blurred Lines (featuring Pharrell Williams and TI), Coldplay vs Joe Satriani for Viva La Vida and many more. Melania Trump as accused of copying part of Michelle Obama’s speech, and even the great James Cameron was accused of plagiarism for his motion picture epic, Avatar.
