As several posters have noted, the internet has contributed to the freeing up of information in more than one way, but a related moral and ethical issue related to this easy access to all sorts of information is plagiarism.Plagiarism is morally and ethically wrong because it is theft and deception; the plagiarist takes someone else’s work and passes it off as her own. The internet allows for easy retrieval of information; that information can be easily copied and pasted into documents written for any number of purposes, whether for classes or businesses or political speeches or whatever.I mostly teach juniors and seniors in college and every semester, without fail, find very serious instances of plagiarism in student papers. I’m sure that I don’t catch all instances of plagiarism and suspect that a number of students have plagiarized over and over again without getting caught before entering my courses. (Plagiarism is easy to detect, even without using services such as TurnItIn.com, if a reader is attentive to shifts in the language and style in the document.)I worry about teachers at all levels relying too heaving on one method of detecting plagiarism (such as TurnItIn.com) and avoiding the more challenging but probably more important method of teaching and modelling good practices when it comes to using other people’s ideas in one’s own writing.
