I agree with Maurice Isserman about plagiarism, “If you own your words… then you should have no difficult in avoiding plagiarism. He also says that you could read about something a million times, but if you don’t know how to explain that in your own words, it means that you learned nothing. I think that makes a lot of sense.
2 years ago I heard about an author that was been sued for plagiarism. Apparently she had copied one or two paragraphs from someone else, but it was such an ordinary story that it could had happened to anyone.
Great to know about copyright, fair use and all of that. Again, I never had to stop and think about that. At least someone is thinking about education and culture before money.
