Using someone else’s ideas and words without giving them credit is wrong – it’s called PLAGIARISM. Give credit where credit is due – when using the work of others, document where you got the ideas or words. Not crediting ideas, not documenting sources is plagiarism. Intentional or unintentional, it does not matter.
