There’s been a lot of talk about plagiarism lately. CIT have this new-fangled-doohickey (technical term) that will detect if any work we submit has borrowed liberally from someone Else’s work.
Course, as this Internet becomes all encompassing and prevalent, and students been given less the benefit of the doubt, it may (will) come to the stage where we’re at the thieved end. So, how to solve this? We all know about copyright, trademark etc, but what to do if this is infringed on?
Found this article which goes some way to answering this.
The main reason I post this is; in college, we’ve all been told about it, all been told what to do, but all in a very broad way. This website also shows you exactly how to find to find out if your content has been stolen, and what to look out for, something that hasn’t been explained to us in any technical way to us in CIT anyway. Also, with a big increase in online portfolios, its good to know that we have a leg to stand on.
Also, for those who don’t intend to have their content online (unlikely the way trends are going), or plain just don’t care (useful link here about that), there’s a lot of tips here for WordPress blogs and blogging in general.
No stupid jokes or ridiculous metaphors here, I’ve been awake since half 6 and still dying with the flu. Thought that I might as well be somewhat productive with my time.
