Perils of the Internet - Pt 2 - Plagiarism
Have you heard the quote "Imitation is the sincerest form of
flattery"? I'm sure people only say that to make you feel better when you
discover someone is copying something that you have slaved over and invented.
Nothing can help that sinking feeling you get when you discover that
someone is using one of your testimonials from a function that you worked your
socks off for, and passing it off as their own. Yes, the dreaded plagiarism.
Whether you want to call it copying or imitation, it is still literary theft of
your intellectual property and possibly fraud too.
In this issue, we
will be looking at plagiarism on the internet, the effects of it, how to detect
it and what you can do about it.
