Plagiarism vs Mashups

Gaurav sent this link to an article describing similarities between passages in Kaavya Viswanathan's book and Rushdie's Haroun and the Sea of Stories and a number of other books.

Everyone says that the plots of those books are different from Kaavya's, but the passages are similar/identical.

So then, isn't it a mashup in a musical sense? As long as it's a different story, who cares if it is made up of bits and pieces of others' stories?
