Nick Richmond

What is plagiarism?

Plagiarism is the practice of taking someone else's work and claiming it to be your own.

What are the consequences?

Plagiarism can be punished by:


-Expulsion from the course


-Your work can be destroyed


-Legal action can be taken

Types of plagiarism:

-Direct word for word copying


-Accidental when the user forgets to submit their sources\


-When a student borrows quotes from another work without using quotation marks

Why is plagiarism bad?

Plagiarism is wrong because you are simply stealing someone else's work and making it your own. A creator has to work hard to make their content and when someone else takes it and claims it as their own it goes to waste.
