How to talk about copyright?


We need to fight plagiarism and other forms of IP theft


In copyright debate plagiarism is often purposefully being used as an example for all types of copyright infringement due to it being universally accepted as reprehensible

Often misleadingly as a synonym for copying

Sometimes is used as an reason to keep works from being published


Use it only in right context, which is: falsely taking credit for someone else’s work

Always differentiate between plagiarism and other kinds of copyright infringement, because they aren’t morally and legally equivalent: copying itself is not plagiarism
