Promissory Note

ABC Blocks

Taking the writings or literary concepts (a plot, characters, words) of another and selling and/or publishing them as one’s own product. quotes which are brief or are acknowledged as quotes do not constitute plagiarism. the actual author can bring a lawsuit for appropriation of his/her work against the plagiarist and recover the profits. normally plagiarism is not a crime, but it can be used as the basis of a fraud charge or copyright infringement if prior creation can be proved.
