What is Digital Law?
Sharing others’ work without giving them credit is considered plagiarism.
Your work can still reference someone else’s, but in order to avoid plagiarism, you need to use citations.
A “citation” is the way you tell your readers that certain material in your work came from another source. It also gives your readers the information necessary to find that source again.
Why is it important to understand Digital Law?
Students who plagiarize can potentially face serious consequences.
The GRPS Student Handbook says that students are responsible for “adhering to all copyright guidelines and avoiding plagiarism.”
