As I finished studying about plagiarism, I found out that I was guilty of it. Whenever we have research work to do for our classes, I usually just do the simple "copy-paste" technique which leaves me a perfect score with no sweat. Oftentimes, I also tend to miss out on crediting the person or a specific source from which I retrieved my answers. It was only until now that I found out that doing this is exactly committing the crime of plagiarism and consequently violating the rights of the person himself/herself. In many ways, this could cause harm or even danger not only to the one who plagiarized but also to the one whose work has been plagiarized. As budding students, we should not plagiarize since it could damage our reputation and well-off character as well. We should work hard for everything we do, and we should not fully rely on others for our jobs.

As actress and singer Judy Garland says, "Always be a first-rate version of yourself, instead of a second-rate version of someone else." cheers

I also learned many things from the presentation about search engines, and I deem those useful for our term paper these last two quarters. Not only that, but I also see it as a big help when I move forward to my college years, when I need to be independent already and work on my own, not depending on others. Smile

very well said, Clarisa! Be proud and confident of what you can do. Don't be afraid to show others what you've got. Be original and don't just copy trends from others. Smile

You're definitely right Litz. I didn't realize until I read your reaction that plagiarism is also cheating. Just as you are when you are cheating during exams, you are not fooling anyone but yourself. Being acknowledged for something which you know is not the fruit of your own labor, you cannot fully be satisfied. It is even degrading for one because you feel unable to accomplish something as good, so for me, plagiarizing is a big NO NO! santa rendeer

well. i guess we all are guilty of this crime.. it's just up to us to do something about it.

I admit it too. Yeah, we should really do something about it. It's never too late to change. Let us train ourselves by using our own ideas and by giving credit to the works that helped us accomplish our tasks.

Me too. Well, I guess everyone of us, in one way or another, are guilty of plagiarism. Instead of just being ashamed of ourselves, let us start to campaign against plagiarism. Smile

This is so true Niña! Victims of plagiarism would really suffer! And we don't want to be one of those victims, don't we? neither do we want to be the cause of other's suffering. So I really think that we should start making a move to stop and change our old ways of plagiarizing other's work, and that move and change will begin in us. cheers


That's right. In order to advocate "no to plagiarism", it should start first with ourselves.

I agree. We must be the start of the change for the brighter future.

adding that topic to the curriculum isn't practical. As a responsible student, we should exercise our own conscience to this kind of topic.

Yes, we should try to put ourselves to someone's shoes before we start plagiarizing his/her work. Though it may seem harmless, it can actually degrade one's character or even put him/her down in the dumps. We should always consider others' feelings before we do something, and in this case, we should consider what one would feel upon knowing that we "copied" their work without proper credit due them.

When doing assignments, i oftentimes copy-paste articles from the net. And now that I've learned about it, I will apply my learnings. From now on, I will always give credit to my source and use my own ideas and words. Hihihihi. :>

I agree. We need to develop self discipline within ourselves to fully say that we are a successful one.

Copying answers from the net or other sources is unavoidable, but as we "paste" our answers in our documents, we should remember to thank the person who helped us by any means in coming up with the answer through mentioning him/her and acknowledging his/her work.

Yes, indeed, a lot of people are knowledgeable with regards to what plagiarism is. We know that plagiarizing is bad and wrong because it is stealing of others intellectual properties. So, what then is the problem?

The big problem is that people are not aware that what they are doing is already plagiarism. Oftentimes, students like me are given research works in school, and our instincts would tell us to just copy paste the information found in the internet, then we have our assignments ready! Not knowing that what we did is already stealing and is against the existing rules and is punishable by law. Waaaaaa! Who now, then, is confident in saying that he/she never commit plagiarism? I believe that all of us, in one way or another have commit plagiarism.

Now that we are aware of this, we must put an end to this bad thing that we are doing. How? In researching, we must not forget to include the citations in our work. Through putting citations, we give acknowledgement and respect to the person who originally thought of the idea and that we are not saying that we are the owners of thatr intellectual property.

LET US SAY NO TO PLAGIARISM NOW!!!! Very Happy



Wow!! This is like plagiarized from my reply.. Just Kidding!!...I totally agree! We must put an end to this bad thing. How can we end this? It's easy! Just cite the source! that's it

Hahahaha! Both of you are correct. Plagiarism is really a bad thing. Thanks for the sharings.Very Happy We should apply our knowledge about the use of plagiarism in order to contribute to stop plagiarism. According to Efren Peñaflorida, "We are the change that we dream." This statement says that change should begin with ourselves. With this change, we can be good examples to other people.Very Happy

You are so right TamaBuds! It's really better to be true and to be you rather than living a life pretending to be someone else whom you are not. Just like in the requirements in school that we submit, doesn't it make you feel better and more proud if you get a high score because you submitted your OWN work rather because you submitted a "patch up" work or worst because you submitted the work of others?

Tricia and Meryl, I agree with you. We need to show respect and express our gratitude to the people who helped us in order not to offend them, right? This also goes in acknowledging whatever they have contributed in our written reports or research papers. Smile In this way, no one will be hurt. A simple "References" section won't hurt, right?

Are you a criminal?

Post  Benitez.Dana on Mon Nov 15, 2010 9:25 pm

Long and laborious history assignment due tomorrow? Easy! I won't have to roll my eyes and grudgingly get a pen and paper. All I have to do is go online and copy-paste information about the Holocaust or Second World War. Now, I could get an A+ and a good night’s rest, right? Wrong! Unfortunately, I could probably get kicked out, sued and then thrown behind bars. And for what? PLAGIARISM.

I have to admit… When I didn’t know any better, I was guilty of plagiarism. I wasn’t just innocent. I was ignorant. I had no idea it was wrong to carelessly copy something off the internet and make it seem like it was my own work. Yet, as time progressed, I slowly understood the technicalities of using references in doing homework and research. I’m a writer, and it’s crucial for me to be very careful about quoting, citing and referring to different source materials. I can lose my credibility and even integrity. So, I see to it I don’t plagiarize most especially when I’m writing in the school paper. I make sure I quote the right people and mention the sources and references of my article... But it doesn't stop there. I will continue this practice even with simple assignments since the consequences of plagiarism don't exempt anyone no matter what his or her situation is. Plagiarism is a crime. It is considered an act of theft in a subtle but not less evil way. It is immoral to steal, may it be a diamond ring or just a sentence from an author's book. I don't want to be a criminal or immoral at the same time, so I wouldn't plagiarize. Perseverance in making an assignment or research may be a Herculean task, but it isn't impossible. So, a Herculean task, I will fulfill so as not be a violator of the moral code.

Moreover, after reading two different PowerPoint presentations, I was a degree wiser. I learned many new things in the field of search engines and researching a topic. I was also delighted to read the PowerPoint “Wading through the Net” because I found out about new ways to make researching a topic easier. It was really helpful to learn about these since I had no idea I could lighten my load by applying this simple applications in search engines and metasearches. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm excited to use these new discoveries in making an assignment in the future.

Thanks, Justine! Smile I think we're on the same boat in our way of thinking. We should stand up for our own! We should not rely on others always. Independence can benefit us in so many ways once we get to college in which we will be far away from our parents or guardians. When we know how to work on our own without making other people help us, we can succeed. Smile As early as now, we should learn to be proud of our own works so that when the time comes that we should express our own thoughts, it would not be as difficult as much as before. Very Happy
