Plagiarism is a severe literature issue, and it should be addressed appropriately. Numerous people have expressed their discontent that their works have been copied. This is true in the majority of cases. However, when we replicate content from another’s work, we must give credit to the creator of the information. No copying should be done to steal another person’s intellectual property. Plagiarism is prohibited and may result in legal penalties if you use another person’s intellectual property without giving them credit or without their knowledge or consent. Individuals plagiarising the work of others is a common occurrence in our daily lives (Curtis, et al., 2017).
The work submitted by college students in the form of assignments is one of the most well-known examples of plagiarism. Students are expected to acquire information via the study of peer-reviewed papers. Students are urged to rephrase the information they have received rather than just repeating it directly from the referenced article. If they use an identical phrase or idea from another author’s work, they must include in-text citations to acknowledge the thought or statement’s source. If not, it would be considered plagiarised content. Plagiarism is a criminal offense since it involves stealing another person’s ideas against the law.
On the other hand, plagiarism is considered illegal when it is committed to stealing another person’s ideas or concepts. Apart from that, people may exploit the views of others to support their arguments and promote their points of view. Plagiarism is permissible in specific circumstances to bolster an argument. Consequently, borrowed wording is often seen in political speeches, as politicians want to make similar promises to the public during election campaigns (Dan Barry, 2003, May 11).
