Couronne, Ivan. ‘Real’ fake research hoodwinks US journals. Phys.org. 7 December 2018. https://phys.org/news/2018-10-real-fake-hoodwinks-journals.html.
I liked this source because it kind of debunked people who wrote articles on basically information that didn’t exist or false information all together. It gives an example of someone who wrote an article on Dog Parks and why they’re “Petri dishes for canine ‘rape culture.” Supposedly there was a lot of research done but it turns out it was all fake. I think this gave a good example of falsification because all of the examples given were of false studies and information.
Leong, Chee-Onn . Data Fabrication and Falsification. Youtube, November 12, 2017. https://youtube.com/watch?v=j9YyxdjdLa8.
I feel this to be a good source, it explains the definition as well giving multiple easy to understand examples. Though it does also give examples and a definition for fabrication, it focuses more on falsification. Alongside this, the examples provided are real world events that have actually occurred. This source allows multiple chances to understand what exactly this word truly entails and is helpful as well as knowledgeable.
Ukrainian Vogue editor suspended for plagiarism of Russian authors
An article by Alec Luhn at The Telegraph News, November 3
This recent example of professional dishonesty really personifies Plagiarism. Plagiarising is using another persons content and presenting it as your own, even if you change the wording in a few places. Plagiarism not only harms the original owner of the work when you benefit off of their work, but it is also very lazy and reflects an unprofessional and dishonest person.
Anna Tingley. Billboard. Chance the Rapper Sued for Copyright Infringement. September 13, 2017. https://www.billboard.com/articles/news/7964711/chance-the-rapper-sued-copyright-infringement.
This is a good example of copyright infringment because a man named Muhammad claims that he never gave Chance the Rapper the right to use a sample of his music and Chance the Rapper is now profiting from his original work. The source also gives information about the legal consequences of using someone else’s work and not giving them credit or not having them give you permission to use their work, such as going to court and being sued and the damages can cost a lot of money.
Kaitlyn Schallhorn, Fox News, Wisconsin Democratic gubernatorial nominee accused of plagiarizing multiple budget proposals, October 22, 2018. https://www.foxnews.com/politics/wisconsin-democratic-gubernatorial-nominee-accused-of-plagiarizing-multiple-budget-proposals
Tony Evers had plagiarized many different articles word for word. In some cases he would cancel out words or switch them out. Plagiarism is still plagiarism whether you change the words or not. His plagiarism dated back to 2012. He had plagiarized some facts sheets, where he only changed one word from the sheet.
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.
“Happy Birthday” song officially recognized in public domain. CBS News. June 27, 2016.
This article is a perfect example of public domain. Public domain is intellectual property that belongs to the public and that can be used freely. However, no one can own the property because it belongs to the public. The “Happy Birthday” song is a widely used song in the public. Almost everyone experiences the song in their lifetime. Thus, the song should belong to the public. In 2016, it was added to the public domain to be freely used by anyone. Thus, it is the perfect example of public domain, intellectual property for the public.
Arushi Patel. Five Plagiarism Cases You Might Not Know About. Odyssey Website. https://www.theodysseyonline.com/5-famous-plagiarism-cases
I chose this piece because it talks about Melania Trump and a speech she gave that was almost the exact same speech that Michelle Obama had given a couple years before. Trump tried saying that Melania had written the speech herself and that she wanted to do it with as little help from the official presidential authors as possible. However, in the end it seemed as though she had just found Michelle’s speech, changed some of the words, and tried to pass it off as her own. People already try to find as many negative things to say about the Trumps as possible and this was just the icing on the cake.
Laura Stampler. A Brief History of Shia LaBeouf Copying the Work of Others. TIME Magazine. February 10, 2014. http://time.com/6094/shia-labeouf-plagiarism-scandal/
This source is a list of 14 times when the actor Shia LaBeouf was caught plagiarizing the work of others. The author Daniel Clowes was one of the victims of LaBeouf’s plagiarism as LaBeouf’s first ever short film HowardCantour.com “took the script and even many of the visuals” from one of Clowes’ stories. LaBeouf later apologized to Daniel Clowes in a public tweet from his personal twitter account.
Plagiarism is not something any artist wants to be known for. The number of times LaBeouf has been caught plagiarizing has caused his career to be in a steady state of decline. In fact, LaBeouf’s career has never been able to make a come back since his plagiarism scandals were brought to light.
