  17. 17. “Art is either plagiarism or revolution.”<br />Paul Gauguin<br />
  18. 18. Truth 2<br />Plagiarism is not bad because it involves copyright infringement, but because it is a lie.<br />
  19. 19. So what?<br />Society should be careful not to plagiarize and become unable to think for themselves, but not fall into the bondage of copyright laws and be unable to think at all.<br />
  20. 20. “Even in the world of copyright, we have a right to repeat people’s words in order to hold them accountable, bring them into dialogue, or use them as a springboard.”<br />Laura J. Murray<br />
