Yet more on stealing sermons

In a recent issue of The Christian Century, Thomas G. Long considers sermon plagiarism:
Pulpit plagiarism may not be new, but there is plenty of evidence that the practice is spreading and that the kerosene on the fire is the Internet. Not only are thousands of sermons available for the snatching on church Web pages, but scores of commercial sites hawk complete sermons, illustrations, outlines, images and PowerPoint accompaniments for a fee. . . .
Others have written on this topic as well, and I've linked to some of those at this blog (here, here, here, here, and here). Dr. Long's essay in particular is noteworthy in its erudition and nuance. Thanks to Oversight of Souls for the link.
