AbstractThis case involved an incident of plagiarism by Justin Timberlake in Professor JC Chasez’s course, Boy Bands 200. When working on a course assignment, Justin Timberlake accidentally plagiarized from one of the course materials. When this came to Professor Chasez’s attention, there was an initial confrontation between the two parties and the case was brought to Honor Council for full restoration of trust on the community level. While the incident of plagiarism was relatively minor, the case remains important because of the significance plagiarism holds in an academic community. This case also brought forth discussion of plagiarism in light of different cultural norms because of Justin Timberlake’s status as an international student.
