Plagiarism

There are plenty of views on plagiarism and people say that it is about copying, borrowing someone else's ideas. However, we would like to say that these are not the perfect terms to define plagiarism. The experts have to say that the precise meaning of plagiarism is to steal someone else's ideas and pass them off as your own. It is about using someone else's published material but without crediting the source. A perfect idea of plagiarism is when you commit library theft. The law states that the expression of original ideas can be registered as intellectual property and is protected by copyright laws. A scenario where you change original words, but maintain sentence structure, but do not give credit is termed plagiarism.
