Plagiarizing

Plagiarizing is the copying, “lifting”, or making slight changes to some or all of someone's work & saying you wrote it. Just like piracy it is an illegal practice.

Copy Right

Copy right is the exclusive legal right, given to an originator to print, publish, perform, film, or record literary, artistic, or musical material, and to authorize others to do the same. You have to give original owners copy right, unless given permission to use freely.

Digital Footprint

Digital footprint is the word used to describe the trail, traces or "footprints" that people leave online. Digital footprints are not just from what you post but also what people post, comment, and share about you.
