This should be written/summarized in your own words, DO NOT PLAGIARIZE someone else’s work!
Plagiarism is the “wrongful appropriation ” and “stealing and publication ” of
another author’s “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions ” and the
representation of them as one’s own original work. Plagiarism is considered
academic dishonesty and a breach of journalistic ethics. It is subject to sanctions
like penalties, suspension, and even expulsion. Recently, cases of ‘extreme
plagiarism’ have been identified in academia. Plagiarism is not a crime per se but
in academia and industry, it is a serious ethical offense, and cases of plagiarism
can constitute copyright infringement.
