The act of appropriating the literary composition of another author, or excerpts, ideas, or passages therefrom, and passing the material off as one's own creation.
Plagiarism is theft of another person's writings or ideas. Generally, it occurs when someone steals expressions from another author's composition and makes them appear to be his own work....
I have written many articles and have them published in many places and on my website, if you are using these without my permission and without due credit you are stealing from me and will get a reaction. It is stealing my intellectual property
The following Note can be found on all my websites:
All articles, text, pictures, photographs, diagrams artwork and images on this website are the intellectual property of the author and may not be copied, used, distributed or reproduced without the express permission and consent of the author.
I have always shared readily and been generous with information, I find it very disrespectful that someone has copied my work as his own and I am angered by this.
