    Protect Yourself from Plagiarism

    (Page 1 of 3 )

    Plagiarism and copyright infringement are not necessarily the same, but both are fairly common in online publishing. If youíre creating content for the Internet, itís important for you to find what plagiarism is, so you can avoid both sides of this issue.

    Either way, you want to be protected from plagiarism. You donít want to commit it -- either intentionally or unintentionally -- and you definitely donít want your Web site to be a victim of it. The worst case scenario is having all your best content stolen, or perhaps being slapped with copyright infringement fines and even jail time.

    There are lots of good reasons that unique content on the Web should stay that way, for everyoneís best interests. Learn how to protect yourself -- and your site -- from plagiarism.

    Defining Plagiarism

    In essence, plagiarism is the act of taking someone elseís work and/or ideas and passing them off as oneís own -- without giving credit to the initial creator of the item in question. For instance, you see a really great article on the Wall Street Journalís online site. You think this piece would make a great addition to your own Web site, so you copy and paste it and place it on your own pages.

    If you donít credit both the Wall Street Journal and the author of the article in question, youíve committed the crime of plagiarism. Itís something that happens every day on the Internet, and you definitely donít want it to happen to your content. Even quoting someone isnít okay, unless you specifically reference who said the words being used for the quote. Plagiarism can be a little hard to define, but itís still an offense that plenty of people take extremely seriously.

    Web sites like ( are committed to stopping plagiarism, both by raising awareness and reporting on it as it happens. When plagiarism gets mixed in with copyright infringement, violators could face serious fines and other legal troubles. Technically, plagiarism isnít the same as copyright infringement, though sometimes the two do seem to go hand-in-hand.
