Assignment 2: Information Ethics kaiserwilhelm44


blippoblappo, and crushingbort. “TIPPING POINTS? MALCOLM GLADWELL COULD USE A FEW.” Our Bad Media, WordPress, 11 Dec. 2014,

This article “TIPPING POINTS? MALCOLM GLADWELL COULD USE A FEW” by authors @blippoblappo and @crushingbort show and explain the intricacies of plagiarism. Plagiarism is the act of copying, using or stealing another’s work and claiming it your own. Malcolm Gladwell didn’t exactly do this, because he cited the pieces he used from others, but this doesn’t excuse him from plagiarizing. The work he used was not under public domain and he had received no permission to use the works he did. This incident gives a good example to the thin, but clear line you must walk when using other’s work.
