The danger of plagiarism and the negative effects on the lives of those who practice it
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.
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.
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 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...
