I guess one definition of intellectual parasitism would be always leeching on to other writer's words and thoughts, rather than articulating one's own. Some examples hover close at hand...
See also: Helminthiasis § TreatmentDrugs are frequently used to kill parasites in the host. In earlier times, turpentine was often used for this, but modern drugs do not poison intestinal worms directly. Rather, antihelmintic drugs now inhibit an enzyme that is necessary for the worm to make the substance that prevents the worm from being digested.For example, tapeworms are usually treated with a medicine taken by mouth. The most commonly used medicine for tapeworms is Praziquantel. Praziquantel is also used to treat infections of certain parasites (e.g., Schistosoma and liver flukes).

Subject: Parasitism

>"Imagine a republic that bans commentary and attempts to reinvest us with
faith in aesthetic immediacy. The parasitism of academic criticism and
journalistic reviewing ceases, the unmanageable flood of unreadable
dissertations subsides, and the interposition of professional opinion
between work and audience is eliminated [....] Aesthetic perception knows
no Archimedean point outside discourse.
