Discovery Institute Steals Harvard Work?

The Discovery Institute claims to be a non-partisan think tank, but is actually interested in promoting specific political agendas ("The Institute discovers and promotes ideas in the common sense tradition of representative government, the free market and individual liberty."). One of the activities it embraces is trying to disprove the theory of evolution. But if this blog entry is right - and the video examples it links to are accurate - then DI personnel have blatantly plagiarized an animated educational short Harvard produced, even stripping out the school's copyright claims. Was this an evolutionary process, or simply divine intervention?
