Transcript of What's the Big Deal about Plagiarism?

It's plagiarism when you
It would feel good, right?
But it would all be based on a lie.
We live in a mashup world
Singers use pieces of other people's songs
The Net offers tons of information for free
Nobody cares where you got it from.
It's the information age after all.
But plagiarism is a real thing
Imagine that you borrowed a friend's hot car and drove it all around town, pretending it was yours. You tweeted about your car and impressed everyone.

You fooled everyone into thinking it was yours.
The fact is that your ability to borrow a car or get something free off the Net
does not mean that you can pretend it's yours.
That's fraud.
Lift a paragraph or article/website and pass it off as your own work
Rewrite someone else's work, just changing a few words and leaving the impression it is yours
Pass off someone else's ideas as your own
Plagiarism is presenting other people's work as if you created it yourself
What's the Big Deal about Plagiarism?

Keep things honest by citing/referencing the sources of your information. This is a very big deal in the academic world.

So, can you now answer the question? ...
You need to create a reference (citation) to show where you got your material from, e.g.:

(Beck, 2002)

Beck, James R. "Self and soul: Exploring the boundary between psychotherapy and spiritual formation."
Journal of Psychology and Theology
31.1 (2002): 24-36.
Being able to cite from others instead of stealing their work and passing it off as your own actually helps your research project
When you cite others, you are using them as authorities to allow others to back up what you are saying. If you steal their words or ideas, those words or ideas only have your own authority to back them up.
