Plagiarism

It's frustrating.


But these cases — typical ones, according to writing tutors and officials responsible for discipline at the three schools who described the plagiarism — suggest that many students simply do not grasp that using words they did not write is a serious misdeed.


It is a disconnect that is growing in the Internet age as concepts of intellectual property, copyright and originality are under assault in the unbridled exchange of online information, say educators who study plagiarism.

Plagiarism is so frustrating that it may end up being the reason I try to find another living. I know that it's "cultural knowledge" to understand the importance of citing what someone else wrote, but a large part of me thinks that only a moron would cut-and-paste blocks of text from one website and put it into their paper after being admonished time and time again that "it's your paper; you need to write it yourself." A person who would unknowingly do such a thing is dumber than bricks. I prefer the students who understand the risks and plagiarize anyway, and when I catch them are honest.
