I logged on this morning to read through the news (I'm trying to make a bit more effort to get back here more often) and was running through the featured articles, when I saw it. I was sure I was having a weird case of deja vú or something. I ran off to my Twitter account to check a recently favorited article on Inman news. My check only confirmed what I suspected. Word for word plagiarism. I'm still trying to wrestle with the idea of it. No source attribution, no comment that it was borrowed from somewhere else, nothing.
I always thought it was more of a subtle problem - less of a copy word for word and more of a copy it concept for concept while rearranging a few things to make it seem like you wrote it yourself.
I don't want to seem too high on my horse about this, but seriously? Without a single mention of who or where it came from? Copying a news article takes two seconds, but so does adding a bit of attribution.
