Quiz: Is this Plagiarism?

Updated on August 30, 2013

Plagiarism and Copyright Violations

Recently in the SquidU forums, I have been frequently encountering copyright violations and some blatant plagiarism. It can be hard for someone to know they are doing something wrong when they see so many other people, on Squidoo and off, copying content for their articles.

I created this quiz to help raise awareness within the community of common copyright violations and misconceptions about plagiarism.

Before the Quiz...

How much do you think you know about plagiarism?

See results

How did you do?

How many did you get right?

See results

Take another quiz! (Or build your own). - It's free, and easy, and you even earn a royalty.

How cool is that. Check out SquidQuiz.

What are your thoughts about the frequency of copyright violations?

      Great lens. Helped answer a few questions for me. The more I learn about copyright, the more I'm getting out my camera!

      I managed to get them all correct, I am very aware of copyright generally but the SquidU discussions of late have increased my understanding of plagiarism on the web. Useful lens and very clear questions and answers

      Good quiz, and I think your questions are clearer and better-worded than mine. I'll feature it on mine!

      (I got 100%, phew)

      I got 100% - great idea! Let's hope newbies all read this lens and take away the lessons you've shared about copyrights and how to avoid plagiarism.

      Great quiz I did get all of them right. Only because I had done my homework way back when. Everyone should take this quiz. Great job.

      Great idea for a lens! I wonder if this should almost be part of "The Answer Deck?"

      With Love and Gratitude,

      I think it's sad that people feel it's alright to take what somebody else worked hard at and pawn it off as his/her own. When somebody writes something, they reveal a tiny part of themselves, and stealing that is like stealing that part of them. Think about that before you copy someone's writing next time...
