What is plagiarism?

According to Webster's dictionary, to "plagiarize" is to:

  • to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own
  • to use (another's production) without crediting the source
  • to commit literary theft
  • to present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source

Plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves stealing someone's ideas, and representing them as your own (a form of fraud/lying).
