First of all, the best thing would be to understand what plagiarism is, as only then can one proceed and understand why this action is reprehensible and can haunt those who practice it eternally both in their academic life and in the pursuit of their career as employee.

Plagiarism is the 'kidnapping' or representation of someone else's work, ideas, thoughts as well as a way of structuring someone else's words, that is, making work written by someone else yours while in fact it is not.

This practice of 'kidnap' of copy-paste work found online has been increasing in recent times, where people hijack someone else's work without citing the true origin with the real intention of making it pass as their own. In many parts of the world, however, this type of offense is not yet criminalized, but in certain countries such as the United States, students caught practicing this type of offense can get severe punishment in others even go to jail.

The danger of plagiarism

As I said in the previous paragraph, this type of 'kidnapping' of someone else's work is still clearly not yet considered a criminal offense punishable by law in many countries, but it was the basis for many laws regarding copyright infringement will be passed, and in certain countries such as States United students who are 'caught' to do so can have their academic record marked forever.

Anyone who thinks that this is raised lightly is a mistake, as, this academic record does not end only in the teaching to which the student was caught, but it follows his entire academic path (high school and higher education) and goes all the way to the professional causing him to be disrespected at work since everyone will consider him a cheater. This practice of plagiarism leads to the offender being marked for life.

Still, there are countries that go even further when people interact in this type of 'offense' and take the guilty to the bar of the court where they are tried and convicted of plagiarism. In Poland and India plagiarism is not taken lightly and people go to prison and pay hefty fines for intentionally engaging in this type of theft of someone else's work.

Effects/results of plagiarism

Some of the results of plagiarism have already been referenced above such as the academic record tainted forever, an effect that accompanies every student and professional card, as well as possible arrests where the offense is considered a crime punishable by law.

But its returns not only end with the punishment for registration or even for paying criminally, but in life it also causes devastating effects. Students found to be plagiarizing may well be expelled and never be allowed to attend that school forever, they are banned from using the student facilities without the right to appeal the decision.

People who plagiarize are usually categorized as cheaters, people who kidnap work that doesn't belong to them without even mentioning the source with the clear intention of appropriating it and gaining credit for the work as if it were. Plagiarism is a serious offense although it is often mitigated but it is an errant behavior of the people who commit it, many do it intentionally to get compensation for the action (earn monetary incentive with other people's work) others however do it unintentionally.

Those who do not intentionally do that after realizing they were doing a moral offense stop immediately, as a result they can take lightly punishment. The others, however, continue to do it and these are the ones who should be punished for committing this type of infraction, after all they clearly do it with the intention of obtaining their own benefits from someone else's work.

Let's imagine that someone produced an original work online and published it on one of the bloggers or social media platforms and that person had their work hijacked by someone else and used it as a form of monetization and did not mention the original source of the work in the same. This work achieves high repercussions and the 'thief' manages with it to make high monetary sums with it, what would be the action of the owner of the original article?! Take the matter lightly or demand that it cite its true origin.

...certain parts of the world people pay large fines from $100-$50,000 and can face jail time for doing this!

Although in both options the original owner has already been offended by having his work stolen and the true origin not being mentioned, that is why some countries do not take this action lightly and charge offenders for it. Although in many countries it is not a crime, it does not mean that there is no loophole in the law to be able to condemn the perpetrators of this type of action, after all, they are stealing other people's ideas and thoughts and using it as their own.

This is bad and reprehensible.

Final considerations

This errant behavior has been increasing on the platform and people intentionally use this type of offense as a way to monetize 'their' work knowing in advance that it does not belong to them. This action is reprehensible because deep down it is 'stealing' monetization from other content creators who have good work on the platform.

People often use gimmicks to steal money from others while they could very well produce their own work without having to incur the risk of plagiarizing. After all, what does it cost to write something that happens in their lives and publish it!?

You see, this site is a blog where people from all over the world can write about everything without having to steal someone else's work and say it is their property. Doing so is stealing not only that person's work but is also abruptly stealing the fund aimed at content creators with the mental capacity to produce their own intellectual work.

You don't need to plagiarize, just write what you like to do, take some photos publish in the community directed towards this, write a diary on your profile, write anything but don't plagiarize, this action will only harm your career as a writer or creator of digital content. Credibility once lost to recover will be very difficult, and if you are in the United States you may never have it again...

Say no to Plagiarism, let's be original.

Excellent article . I hate seeing the rift in the community . Maybe this can start the healing process . It seems to me that a lot of people don't know , or don't understand the definition of plagiarism , or what copyright infringement is .

My suggestion is that before anyone publishes anything to their page, they should read up on the rules and regulations of the website they are posting to , and do some online research into what plagiarism is , and how to avoid it .

When I read the response article that was posted by the person in defense of their position they ended implicated themselves further, and actually admitted to wrongdoing . They were literally telling on themselves and proving the accusations were correct , but somehow they thought it was helping their argument ? To me this shows that there is more going on than just blatant theft . ( At least in this particular instance anyway. )

Here's to moving forward , shutting down the cheaters , and helping those who really want to learn the right way ! Cheers

I believe that many in fact don't know what is plagiarism or even copyright infringement yet they don't want to learn. When someone is called to account for committing an offense he will soon use arguments that sincerely only prove that he is a plagiarist. Those who don't know what it is try to learn not to be making the same mistake. They learn and follow like good writers.

Great work! You nailed it, very clear and straight to the point. Let's hope many around here read this. Some like to take shortcuts on writing content. But shortcuts only lead to failure. They may work out at first, but sooner or later turns against you!

No short cuts in content creation, that is the first rule in writing. People whom often do that get caught, it can take years, days or even minutes but the end is to get caught. Working hard to deliver content that catapult eyes from readers and original one, that can lead to infinite success.

Agree with you! And the point is why people insist on copying content here if Read.cash allows you to write about almost everything. It isn´t too hard to write original content if you can freely write about anything.

Just be ORIGINAL and anything can be just fine. There are so much to be written about own life and experiences no matter in what topic, the writer will be just fine. People intend all the way to make short cuts and that is where they fail, nothing passes away and everything can be proven if it your or not. They should use time to make their own work instead of copy-paste article 'hijacked'in the internet.

Yup. .and because of this, we are now checking our article even the personal blogs to make sure that it is 100% unique coz some users consider a small percentage as plagiarized..

I just don't understand why some people waste their time copying from other sources when they can just write based on their own experience.

I don't do research-based articles not unless it's necessary since I've already done that for work, I prefer to write something light. Even so, I still check my work for plagiarism lately just to be sure it's 100% free from plagiarism.

Anyway, nice article.

Some are just hopeless. They don't understand and keep doing that. And there are some that also support them, while they don't plagiarise themselves for some reason they support that we should allow this.

Plagiarism should not be allowed in any place, that represent your thoughts, ideas, your way of writing it's your mark. And if people don't consider a brand something to protect then something very bad is happening with them... That is the same to allow people to steal your money right from your pocket.

You need some experience to deal with articles In daily basis, topics to write doesn't come that fast, need a good mindset to do that. Newbies are trying to much some accomplishments that 'veterans' have in the blogging media space and doing that one way or other they will have to PLAGIARISE. Slowly they can reach more people and touch them to follow their work.
