Rule #6: Plagiarism

When you plagiarize, you take someone else's work and make it your own without permission which is against the law. That doesn't mean you can't use the website, you can you just need to use your own words. Always make sure you cite the website you got the info from.

Rule #7: Copyright

Copyright is when someone makes or comes up with a story, idea, book, movie, etc, it is under copyright. That means that if someone wants to use your movie, book, or idea for their work, they have to ask your permission before they are allowed to use it. Some things, such as books, often let you use their quotes or facts without permission. But if you take that too far, you could get sued and you could owe lots of money to the original owner.
