Il serait intéressant de trouver l’origine de la phrase, qu’on touve ailleurs (avec un consensus pour l’attribuer à Wilson Mizner quotes, qui l’aurait dite mais pas écrite) comme :
They say that “stealing from one source is plagiarism, but stealing from many sources is research.” (http://www.writing-world.com/rights/research.shtml)
The quote “If you copy from one author, it's plagiarism. If you copy from two, it's research.” has been attributed to playwright, raconteur and entrepreneur Wilson Mizner. The exact wording to which you allude has been widely attributed to comedian Steven Wright. Did he plagiarize Mizner?

“To steal ideas from one person is plagiarism; to steal from many is research.” The earliest citations are dated 1938. A version of the saying is attributed to Mizner in a book in that year, and the quip is used by Chase in the October issue of The Commentator magazine. The famed Algonquin Round Table met in a hotel that was owned and managed by Frank Case who published a book in 1938, Tales of a Wayward Inn, about his experiences. Case attributes a version of the remark about plagiarism to Wilson Mizner [FCWM]: As Wilson Mizner says, “When you take stuff from one writer it’s plagiarism, but when you take from many writers it’s called research.” Also, in 1938 Joseph Cummings Chase, a prominent portraitist and art teacher, wrote a piece in The Commentator magazine that includes a variant of the quotation.
