Plagiarism vs Logic

22 January 2013, 16:01

Plagiarism is the "wrongful appropriation" and "purloining and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions," and the representation of them as one's own original work. The idea remains problematic with unclear definitions and unclear rules. The modern concept of plagiarism as immoral and originality as an ideal emerged in Europe only in the 18th century, particularly with the Romantic Movement.

Plagiarism is considered academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics. It is subject to sanctions like expulsion.

Plagiarism is not a crime per se but in academia and industry it is a serious moral offence, and cases of plagiarism can constitute copyright infringement.

The above was taken from Wikipedia, an free online encyclopedia.

If one has the logic to understand a certain subject, topic or interest and used a free encyclopedia as your source, taken into account that what you are submitting is not on any academic level or Journalism, but taking your understanding of free content, applying logic and using words already printed to combine your view, this is not plagiarism, it’s applying your logic to an interest in a creative sense. How does one word an interest that has already been worded?

Racism and torture is Morally wrong, applying your time and understanding to an interest and wording it as you feel appropriate isn’t Plagiarism, it is but only your creative point of view, so in future, if you do not like articles pertaining to interests above your understanding, don’t call it plagiarism, don’t call it anything, if anything please don’t comment on an article if you have nothing valuable or constructive to add, it is just this simple.
