Does plagiarism trump stupidity?

Here’s a dilemma:  A guy at work — I call him “Eddie” for legal reasons — gives me a document to edit (stupidly holding back for days after announcing its existence, giving the impression that he’s really breaking his ass on it.)  It’s basically terrible, and I actually rehearse a script to tell him so, but not that clearly.  With the idea of helping, I research the issue a bit more, and thus find the document from which he lifted several bits verbatim.
Of course he outranks me in corporate heirarchy, though, clearly, in no other way; he is a worm.
How do I ever converse with him in future, after my brief email that includes the terms “unethical” and “illegal”?
