  1. 1. COPYRIGHT IN THE TECHNOLOGY AGE Erika DeBellis Megan Haske Erin Brown
  2. 2. PLAGIARISM is defined as the Plagiarism use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and passing the work off as one’s own (Wikipedia).
  3. 3. YOU DECIDE….. will be giving you some examples We of cases in which a student may have or may not have plagiarized their work. It is up to you to decide whether or not they did.
  4. 4. EXAMPLE #1 teacher assigned an essay on Becky’s the Civil War for homework. Becky went home and searched the Internet for information about the war. She found numerous facts online, that she decided to use in her paper. She did not cite any quotes or other authors’ words within the paper but cited her sources at the end. Did Becky plagiarize?
  5. 5. ANSWER technically Becky did Yes, plagiarize, because while she showed her sources at the end of her paper in a bibliography, she did not cite the sources within the paper when she used them.
  6. 6. EXAMPLE #2 Brandon is a college student at Michigan State  University. He has exams this week along with 2 term papers to write. One of his term papers is for his Spanish class. While he was in the library the other day, Brandon found a book that was written in Spanish and that he could use to help him write his term paper. Well, Brandon ended up procrastinating and waited until the night before to type his paper. Three out of the five pages that he wrote were taken directly from the book. No where in his paper did he state that he was using information from the book he found at the library. Did Brandon plagiarize?
  7. 7. ANSWER answer is yes. Brandon definitely The plagiarized. A majority of his paper was taken word for word from the book, and he didn’t cite his resources. In this case, however, even if he had cited that he used the book to help him, he still would have been convicted of plagiarism because only a certain amount of work can be taken from another author or person.
  8. 8. EXAMPLE #3  Lucy is writing a speech about how beauty pageants are harmful to little girls. She uses a variety of sources including: books, Internet, T.V., magazines and radio. When writing her speech Lucy cites and gives credit when she uses information that she found in books and on the Internet. However, she does not cite the information that she got from T.V. or radio. Did Lucy plagiarize?
  9. 9. ANSWER  Yes,in fact Lucy did plagiarize. All information needs to be cited no matter what the source of it is. This is why there are so many problems with plagiarizing in schools. All of the new forms of technology present new ways to obtain information. While it may not seem necessary to cite the source, one must because the information is not their own.
  10. 10. TO SUM IT ALL UP those few examples helped Hopefully you grasp a better understanding of the different ways that students plagiarize and some of the things to look out for when you are an educator yourself. Plagiarism is a serious issue and it needs to be treated as one. Students and teachers both need to be aware of the ways that one can avoid plagiairsm.
