The Difference between Inspiration and Plagiarism

This is a good read.

Plagiarism has become one of the biggest problems in the sphere of modern writing. Many of you would agree that we are not able to reinvent the wheel. We live in the society and surrounded by other people and their works. Without any doubts, all this influences on us.

When writing something, we certainly use the words and thoughts of other people. We take them as role models. When we read their stories or works, they truly inspire us. Due to this, we are able to create something by our own hands, but would it be considered plagiarism? How to draw the line between plagiarism and inspiration, when we use others to get inspired? In fact, itís not so easy to answer the question.

Inspiration comes out from your own brain and mind or after seeing or watching someone else as inspiration but you dont imitate them. Plagiarism means you cheat on people's answer like copy paste an article from google.

Being inspired by someone's work means that your are able to "pattern" your ideas through your inspiration and create a masterpiece out of this. Plagiarism on the other hand, means that you are only plainly copying someone else's work for the sake of personal gain...

Plagiarism is just copying someone's text word by word. If you write about the same idea that someone else wrote about but use your own words it's not the same thing.

Not so simple. You could be sited for plagiarism if you just use parts of someone else's work. It could be a page, paragraph, and yes, even some "phrasing".

Plagiarism isn't just concocted for use in just an article or blog. It could be on a website, newsletter, print (flyer, brochure, magazine etc), music, voice audio and more.
