Re: [Harp-L] Plagiarism

Here's what 'I' want t know. Just as people have used all the possible musical notes and even many combinations thereof, I would imagine that someone has used every word in the Webster's Unabridged Dictionary (and equiv dictionaries from other languages), and many combinations or words thereof.
Sooo, If I use the phrase 'Who died and left YOU boss'?, do I have to credit the originator of the phrase? Like:

ref: Rocco Belsito, Brooklyn N.Y. 12/11/52.
