    History of Plagiarism
    • The word plagiarism derives from Latin roots: plagiarius, an abductor, and plagiare, to steal
    • 3. Shakespeare stole most of his historical plots directly from Holinshed
    • 4. Oscar Wilde was repeatedly accused of plagiarism
    • 5. Martin Luther King plagiarised part of a chapter of his doctoral thesis
    • 6. George Harrison was successfully sued for plagiarising the Chiffons' He's So Fine for My Sweet Lord.
    • 7. "When Brahms wrote his first symphony, he was accused of having used a big theme from Beethoven's Ninth. His reply was that any fool could see that.“
    • 8. In that sense, then, all culture is plagiarism.

  • 19. Q. How does Turnitin work?A. A new technology called document source analysis, which uses a set of powerful algorithms to make a digital "fingerprint" of any text document and then compare it against millions of other sources on the Internet. Turnitin has compiled a massive database of digital material by continually cataloging and indexing online academic works with automated web robots. Online paper mills are a major focus of the searches.

    Q. Are uploaded papers from individuals or from courses confidential?A. Yes. The paper will not be released without author or instructor permission.
    Q. How long does a check take?A. Once uploaded, test papers are mathematically fingerprinted for content and analyzed against Turnitin's massive database of hundreds of thousands of previously archived papers, as well as against millions of other sources on the Web. Originality reports are usually issued within 48 hours.
