Dual Diploma's Plagiarism Policy
Plagiarism happens everywhere!
What is plagiarism?
Do you think you have ever plagiarized? (either knowingly or unknowingly)
Types of Plagiarism
turning in someone else’s work as your own
copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit
failing to put a quotation in quotation marks
giving incorrect information about the source of a quotation
changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit
copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not
Take for example Robert Van Winkle, AKA Vanilla Ice. "Vanilla Ice became a household word for a while, not because of his talent, but because of the copyright infringement that [occurred] in 1990 when he had used Queen and David Bowie’s “Under Pressure” without consent or license" (Famous Copyright Infringement).
Although Vanilla Ice and Queen and David Bowie settled out of court for an undisclosed amount, Van Winkle has said that even though he altered the original rhythm he now owes money every time the song is played (Famous Copyright Infringement).
1. All documents are scanned for plagiarism.
2. If plagiarism is confirmed, a zero will be given AND the student will be required to have a counseling session with his/her teacher. Program directors and parents will also be informed.(FIRST OFFENSE)
3. If plagiarism is confirmed a SECOND time, the student will be given a zero with no retry option as well as a counseling session with the teacher. Program directors and parents will also be informed.
4. If THIRD time occurs, student will be sent to Academic Review Committee for possible expulsion from the program.
Note! Changing the words of an original source is not sufficient to prevent plagiarism. If you have retained the essential idea of an original source, and have not cited it, then no matter how drastically you may have altered its context or presentation, you have still plagiarized
The music industry is littered with examples of Plagiarism. However, most artists do not face legal or financial punishment for their dishonest and illegal practices. But, when they do, it can tarnish reputations and destroy careers.
Just like in your academic or career lives.
Plagiarism is not just in educational settings. It can be found in a variety of settings. However, it is NOT accepted in any of them.
Although at first Vanilla Ice denied the similarities between the songs, he eventually admitted his wrong doing and issued an apology--along with the out of court settlement.
Let's just say Robin Thick and Pharrell Williams found out the lines between their paychecks and a plagiarism law suit were not as "blurred" and they would like.
On March 10, 2015, a California Jury "who listened to testimony from musicologists, as well as Thicke and Williams. Marvin Gaye's children, Nona, Frankie and Marvin Gaye III, will receive $4 million in damages and $3.3 million of the profits that "Blurred Lines" made, along with $9,000 in statutory damages, according to The New York Times. T.I., who was listed in the suit by real name Clifford Harris, Jr., was found not liable" (Grow). In total, the judgement cost over $7.4 million as well as legal fees and tarnished their reputations.
So why should students care?
Plagiarism is considered cheating--And can lead to failing grades, suspensions or even expulsion.
*** Simply acknowledging that certain material has been borrowed, and providing your audience with the information necessary to find that source, is usually enough to prevent plagiarism.
- Rewording the original information
- Doesn't require quotations
- Does require noting where the information came from
