Any kind of plagiarized writing by persons of power. Term coined after the doctoral thesis of Hungarian President Pal Schmitt. A Piece of ScHmITt can be distinguished from other forms of plagiarism by the author’s reliance on political or other means of control to circumvent standards and avoid being held accountable once their fraud is exposed.
