PLAGIARISM

I want you to read this and seriously think about it while writing your paper.
.
PLAGIARISM is defined, according to Black’s Law Dictionary (2nd Edition), “the act of appropriating the literary composition of another, or parts or passages of his writings, or the ideas or language of the same, and passing them off as the product of one’s own mind.” See: http://thelawdictionary.org/plagiarism/
.
In short, it is an intellectual thievery. See http://www.indiana.edu/~wts/pamphlets/plagiarism.shtml for more academic details.
.
For acts on plagiarism, see Far Eastern University’s policy on academic integrity at https://jrm102.files.wordpress.com/2011/11/policy-on-academic-integrity-and-non-solicitation-of-funds1.pdf
.
In Philippine laws, it is a violation of Republic Act No. 8293 (Intellectual Property Code of the Philippines) and Republic Act 10175 (Cybercrime Prevention Act of 2012). When you plagiarized, you will be punishable by:
.
A. Imprisonment of one (1) year to three (3) years plus a fine ranging from Fifty thousand pesos (P50,000) to One hundred fifty thousand pesos (P150,000) for the first offense;
.
B. Imprisonment of three (3) years and one (1) day to six (6) years plus a fine ranging from One hundred fifty thousand pesos (P150,000) to Five hundred thousand pesos (P500,000) for the second offense;
.
C. Imprisonment of six (6) years and one (1) day to nine (9) years plus a fine ranging from five hundred thousand pesos (P500,000) to one million five hundred thousand pesos (P1,500,000) for the third and subsequent offenses.
.
So for those who committed plagiarism, I am giving you another chance to redeem yourself. For those who committed twice, you automatically failed the course.
