Cindy’s Favorite Sites to Avoid Plagiarism
Whatever name you want to give it, plagiarism, academic integrity, copyright infringement they all have misplaced the fundamental values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility. Not to mention, it’s against the law as stated in the Grand Canyon University, Institutional Information Document (2015-2016. pg. 3):
Copyright infringement is the act of exercising, without permission or legal authority, one or more of the exclusive rights granted to the
copyright owner under section 106 of the Copyright Act (Title 17 of the United States Code). These rights include the right to reproduce
or distribute a copyrighted work. In the file-sharing context, downloading or uploading substantial parts of a copyrighted work without
authority constitutes an infringement.
Penalties for copyright infringement include civil and criminal penalties. In general, anyone found liable for civil copyright infringement
may be subject to the following penalties:
· Actual damages or “statutory” damages affixed at not less than $750 and not more than $30,000 per work infringed.
· For “willful” infringement, a court may award up to $150,000 per work infringed. A court may, at its discretion, also assess costs and attorneys’ fees. For details, see Title 17, United States Code, Sections 504, 505.
· Willful copyright infringement may also result in criminal penalties, including imprisonment of up to five years and fines of up to $250,000 per offense.

GCU Library can also create a customized online webinar just for our class in a particular course. If we have several dates or times in mind, when most of us may be able to gather together, the library can do an instructional virtual webinar via GoToMeeting just for our classes. We can focus on specific assignments, provide a general overview on best searching strategies, and review proper APA formatting. The library would be happy to run it on several days to accommodate everyone's schedules if needed.
