Blackboard Unveils Plagiarism Prevention Service

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Blackboard Unveils Plagiarism Prevention Service
Blackboard has launched a plagiarism detection service. It compares submitted work to a database of 2.6 million papers along with articles submitted by institutions and 'voluntarily' by students. The company is also up to its old tricks - despite the longstanding (and controversial) existence of TurnItIn, Blackboard does not even blush when it claims that "SafeAssign is a unique plagiarism prevention service because student and/or faculty papers are included." It's hard not to see the irony in the copying of an anti-plagiarism service. More...

Can You Plagiarize A Photograph?

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Can You Plagiarize A Photograph?
You stand in the same place as someone did once before, point your camera in the same direction - usually at something obvious, like the Eiffel Tower or the Sydney Opera House - and you take what amounts to the same picture as your predecessor. Is it plagiarism? The answer is not so obvious as you might think. Certainly, there is a premium for originality - I was really pleased in 2004, for example, to have been able to take this photo of the opera house from a different angle than the thousands of shots taken before mine.

Students Rebel Against Database Designed to Thwart Plagiarists

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Maria Glod[Edit][Delete]: Students Rebel Against Database Designed to Thwart Plagiarists, Washington Post [Edit][Delete] October 2, 2006
Well this is a good point. How can anti-plagiarism services operate without ignoring copyright? "They object to Turnitin's automatically adding their essays to the massive database, calling it an infringement of intellectual property rights." It's a good point, as is the presumption of guilt implicit in use of the service. More...

Plagiarism: Another Perspective

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Charles Nelson[Edit][Delete]: Plagiarism: Another Perspective, Explorations in Learning [Edit][Delete] August 9, 2006
Interesting take on what may be called "institutional plagiarism," including "ghostwriting, honorary authorship, political speechwriting and beauracratic documents." Certainly I have seen no shortage of presentations written by staff for some executive member or officer who will present it (it's always sad to see them flip through slides knowing nothing about their content). For that matter, what would we call a news article that reprints a press release? An editorial that reprints a campaign circular. More...

The New Plagiarism

By Stephen Downes - Stephen's Web. Jonathan Bailey[Edit][Delete]: The New Plagiarism, Plagiarism Today [Edit][Delete] May 24, 2006
At the best of times I am pretty sceptical about accustaions of plagiarism. In this case, where the author depicts a type of (what he considers to be) excess block quoting with attribution to be a new form of plagiarism, I am inclined to side with the numerous critics of the piece. To be sure, there are blogs of the type he describes in our field. But I have never detected any loss of readership or confusion about attribution as a consequence. More...
