What is Plagiarism?

"Plagiarism is the use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work.Plagiarism is not copyright infringement. While both terms may apply to a particular act, they are different transgressions. Copyright infringement is a violation of the rights of a copyright holder, when material protected by copyright is used without consent. On the other hand, plagiarism is concerned with the unearned increment to the plagiarizing author's reputation that is achieved through false claims of authorship" - Wikipedia
