  1. Plagiarism is a serious matter. Before people plagiarize, they need to put themselves in the shoes of the person who’s work they are trying to use. You never know when something will be discovered and published. For example, a regular school paper may very well one day turn into a famed article worth millions. What if the person who’s paper was discovered didn’t actual write it themselves? No credit, honor or even money would be given to the true author. Perhaps if the original person had been given due credit, they would have become even more inspired, enough to write an award winning book. Instead, the inspiration would be wasted on an unappreciative, lazy student. Unless in a normal daily discussion, credit should be given to the person who came up with a topic, idea, etc. I find it sad that we have to resort to disciplinary committees for such matters, but for most people that is what it takes. It’s disappointing, but a lot of people will not do the honorable thing and not cheat. It’s like littering. It should be common courtesy to throw away your own trash, but many are still too lazy. Thus, fines are posted on many locations.
