What is a "practical" definition, or recognition, of plagiarism in
Surely if a student copies a "white paper" from a web site and turns
it in as original work it is plagiarism and possibly copyright
infringement. But what about whole paragraphs and definitions from
said white paper? I know "short phrases", such as "social network
mapping" are not copyrightable, nor open to plagiarizing, as long as
they are not trademarked. But what constitutes the "line in the sand"
for plagiarism? I'm sure it varies, a freshman undergraduate gets
more leeway than a PhD thesis or a professor's work.
What is common practice? Any help or guidelines would be appreciated!
