Don't forget the sources
Hollywood celebrities may be placed on a pedestal but even they can’t get away with plagiarizing. Shia LaBeouf’s recent plagiarism of a graphic novel for his short film “HowardCantour.com” landed him all over the news. He took a step in the right direction when he publicly apologized on Twitter, but was sent right back to square one when it was discovered the apologies were also plagiarized.
It isn’t hard to attribute sources, especially in papers written during college. That doesn’t stop students from copying and pasting or looking at another student’s paper. According to nytimes.com, 125 Harvard students worked together on a take-home exam and were investigated for plagiarism in 2012.
