You must have heard the word plagiarism. Ever wonder what does it mean and why we should know about it ?
Any of the following is considered plagiarism.
- turning in someone else’s work as your own
- copying words or ideas from someone else without giving credit
- giving incorrect information about the source
- changing words but copying the sentence structure of a source without giving credit
- copying so many words or ideas from a source that it makes up the majority of your work, whether you give credit or not
In other words, plagiarism is an act of fraud. It involves both stealing someone else’s work and lying about it afterward (either by refusing or by not giving due credit).
Now, are you wondering why am I talking about this ?

We all know that one of the ways blogging is being used is as a medium for people to express themselves, pour their emotions and talk about issues which bother them and get the opinions of complete strangers on those issues. It brings us to the fundamental question. How personal are personal blogs? Isn’t that a misnomer?
Name one medium in today’s world which is unbiased, unprejudiced, impartial, impervious to censorship and gives a genuine meaning to the term “freedom of speech”?
