4 What is Plagiarism? According to Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary:
To steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one’s own To use (another’s production) without crediting the source To commit literary theft To present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source

5 Can words and ideas really be stolen?
According to U.S. law, yes. The expression of original ideas is considered intellectual property. They are, just like original inventions, protected by copyright laws.
