Press release from: Arbor Books, Inc.

(New York, NY)—Plagiarism is a modern-day plague for industries across the board and even affects the lives of entertainment superstars like Avril Lavigne and Adam Sandler.

In recent months, plagiarism scandals have arisen involving the music and film industries. Two American songwriters claimed that the chart-topper “Girlfriend” by Avril Lavigne was plagiarized from the 1979 song “I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend” by the Rubinoos.

Similarly, Adam Sandler’s new box-office smash I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, has been accused of being a rip-off of Paul Hogan’s Australian comedy Strange Bedfellows (2004). Both plots involve two straight men who pretend to be a gay couple.

With the rise of track sampling in Hip Hop and the movie remakes of old films and novels flooding the market, it’s no surprise that such allegations are all over the media. For novelists— where plagiarism is as old as the printed page itself—scandals in the other entertainment branches have brought a heightened awareness to the already highly-scrutinized industry.

But for the wary writer, there is a solution.

Arbor Books (, a provider of self-publishing, ghostwriting and marketing services, announced that it has entered into a strategic alliance with BeaconOne Insurance to provide comprehensive protection for Arbor Books’ clients against plagiarism.

Larry Leichman, co-owner of Arbor Books, emphasizes the consequences of plagiarism: “Major lawsuits, financial ruin, a destroyed reputation and a lifetime of stigma are all a part of plagiarism,” he says. “There are writers who find it more expedient to plagiarize. The media is filled with best-selling authors who have been tainted with accusations of plagiarism.”

In the United States, Arbor Books is the only ghostwriting firm to offer protection against the growing problem of plagiarism and is also associated with one of the most prestigious publishing law firms in the United States.

“The best way to safeguard yourself against plagiarism is to work with a reputable ghostwriting firm—and not a referral agency or an individual,” says Joel Hochman, co-owner of Arbor Books.

“Hiring a lone ghostwriter on your own leaves you open to plagiarism because there is no supervision,” says Mr. Hochman. “At Arbor Books, we have an expert staff of seasoned editors and managers to provide oversight, as well as other security measures to stop plagiarism.”

A full-service, turnkey publishing company with a staff of 100 writers, designers and publicists, Arbor Books works with mainstream publishing companies, independent publishers and self-publishing authors through the process of manuscript preparation, cover design, illustration, printing, distribution, book marketing and author publicity.

With its well-deserved worldwide reputation, the Arbor Books ghostwriting division works with Fortune 500 companies, public relations firms, advertising companies, Hollywood celebrities, sports figures, politicians, businesspeople, public speakers, financial advisors and others interested in having their fiction or nonfiction book become a reality.

Arbor Books authors have appeared on Oprah, Montel, CNBC, MSNBC, CNN, ABC News and FOXNews, and have become columnists for major newspapers and magazines, including USA Today.

Arbor Books authors sell their books through more than 40,000 stores worldwide, including Barnes & Noble, Borders, Costco, Wal-Mart and, as well as through specialty catalogs, distributors and book clubs.

Cofounders Hochman and Leichman are publishing industry veterans and are listed in the Literary Market Place. Arbor Books is a member of the Better Business Bureau.
