There is a monograph on every subject.

For reasons that are totally none of your business, the other day I was looking up a Wikipedia article on “Bills of Lading”. The article had been deleted because its text had been unambiguously plagiarised from another source. That source was a book titled

Ocean bills of lading: traditional forms, substitutes, and EDI systems by Athanassios N. Yiannapoulos.

Not a topic I would think anyone could write 280 pages about! But what do I know? Apparently not that much about ocean bills of lading, whether traditional, substitutes, or EDI.

Here’s a quote from the page Wikipedia linked to:

That’s right:

The shipper always has the right under the Hague-Visby rules that a traditional “shipped” bill of lading be issued and this renders the sea waybill nugatory.

Nugatory, Captain.
