Plagiarism is a serious temptation for Internet savvy students. Learning the
definition of plagiarism is the first step to resisting the temptation. Plagiarism
is cheating by stealing another person's work and lying about it through omission
or commission. Do not gain a reputation as a thief, liar, and cheater. Selling
your integrity may buy you a high scoring essay but is it worth the cost? "A
good name is rather to be chosen than great riches..." (Prov. 22:1). Mr.
N. sings Ecc.10:1 to remind us of dead flies
"Moral courage is the most valuable, and generally the most absent characteristic in men." (General George S. Patton Jr). Not only is plagiarism morally unacceptable, it is also against the law. Students have been expelled from universities for violating copyright. As hyperhistory.net publishes submissions, we do not want to encounter a lawsuit.

The American Historical Association makes a Statement on Plagiarism.
Avoid the plagiarism of artwork:
"If a writer wants to use visual information from a WWW site, many of the same rules apply. Copying visual information or graphics from a WWW site (or from a printed source) is very similar to quoting information, and the source of the visual information or graphic must be cited. These rules also apply to other uses of textual or visual information from WWW sites; for example, if a student is constructing a web page as a class project, and copies graphics or visual information from other sites, she must also provide information about the source of this information. In this case, it might be a good idea to obtain permission from the WWW site’s owner before using the graphics." (IU Writing Tutorial Services) http://www.indiana.edu/~wts/pamphlets/plagiarism.shtml

|"In 1849 many German states offered the crown of a united Germany to Frederick William of Prussia. He refused it, declaring that "I cannot pick up a crown from the gutter". Bismarck was relieved because he had feared that Prussia might become part of a flabby, liberal united Germany. He was not against the unification of the German states, but if and when it occurred, it would have to be on terms imposed by Prussia and under its control."||"Frederick William of Prussia was offered the crown by many German states in 1849. He rejected it, proclaiming, “I cannot pick up a crown from the gutter.” Bismarck showed relief in this because of his fear that Prussia would become united with Germany. Although he did not despise the unification, he knew if William accepted the crown, Germany would have to live by the enforced terms set by Prussia. "|
