A Campus Fad That's Being Copied: Internet Plagiarism

Thirty-eight percent of the undergraduate students surveyed said that in the last year they had engaged in one or more instances of “cut-and-paste” plagiarism involving the Internet, paraphrasing or copying anywhere from a few sentences to a full paragraph from the Web without citing the source.
