A high school student loses her admission to Harvard. A politician is disgraced. A historian is discredited. For all these people, the offense was plagiarism-taking someone else's words and presenting them as your own. While plagiarism has been a problem since the invention of the printing press, today the Internet has made copying and cheating just a click away.
