(In this case, it probably makes more sense to leave a profile comment, but someone already has. I might leave one anyway in this case.)
Copy & pasting book cover descriptions probably falls within fair use, so not a copyright violation, right?
Wrong, I think. A quote of a sentence or two, maybe, but surely not the whole thing!
(I'm kind of a stickler about these kinds of things, so I tend to think it's all plagiarism, but I got the sense that many here thought was thought "ok" to repeat book jacket descriptions in the CK description field. So if it's not a copyright violation/TOS violation in one place, it can't really be in the other. Or, maybe my stickler-instincts are correct, and it is in both...)
I'm pretty sure it is copyright violation - pasting the whole thing is certainly not fair use.
As a review, I would say not a review flag, because even if a summary is written by the reviewer, it is still not a review.
