ABSTRACT
The article differentiates plagiarism from copyright infringement. Copyright is a set of laws that governs the creation, reproduction and distribution of original works that can be perceived. Plagiarism, in comparison, is the act of stealing and passing off someone else's ideas or words as one's own without crediting the source. While a recorded idea can be subject to plagiarism and copyright infringement, a person could use a recorded idea if that use falls under one or more copyright exceptions.
