    What exactly is Plagiarism, and the most important aspect in plagiarism that writers need to know?

    Plagiarism is stealing material written by someone else and presenting it as your own.  That is both what it is and the most important aspect that a writer needs to know.

      Thanks for this answer. There is a controversial aspect of whether it refers to the idea being stolen and is presented using different set of words, or is it only when you copy the same text that you commit plagiarism.

      Ideas are not protected by copyright. But if the storyline, plot, structure etc. are identical or very similar, probably there is plagiarism.

      Depending on the originality of the idea, it is possible to plagiarize people's concepts, but it's much harder to legally prove.

      I agree because some ideas are common,  especially ideas about life. Everyone experiences them, and how can life experiences be entirely different? Maybe when you use your own words to express it.

    Even the idea can be plagiarised, if it is rephrased in other words, keeping the meaning same. The best way to avoid plagiarism is to acknowledge the source from where the information is taken. Even if one works with an original idea from someone else's creation and then builds on that, it must be acknowledged in the bibliography or cited as a reference, otherwise it is a case of plagiarism.

    The best thing a writer can do is cite the reference whenever any idea or statement or any information is being used from other sites/resources.

      Plagiarism and intellectual property theft are not identical, as you seem to be implying, but they do both exist.
