John Day's Law-Trickes, or Who Would Have Thought It (Blackfriars 1604)
is a very obvious rip-off of the previous season's Measure for Measure
(Globe 1603).

Edward III appears to have been written between 1590 and 1596. There's a
good chance, therefore, that Daye saw the original. Theobald, on the
other hand, is a lot harder to deal with, since what we have is the
re-write of a play with no known copies, and once we consider that the
lines quoted could have been originally by Fletcher.
