Plagiarism Made Easy:
From the website plagiarism.org: "What is plagiarism" (n.d.):
"Many people think of plagiarism as copying another's work or borrowing someone else's original ideas. But terms like "copying" and "borrowing" can disguise the seriousness of the offense. "
"In other words,
is an
act of fraud
. It involves both stealing someone else's work and lying about it afterward."
("What is plagiarism", n.d.)
to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
to use (another's production) without crediting the source
to commit literary theft
to present as new and original idea or product derived from an existing source
