Plagiarism and Fair Use

What is plagiarism? "Plagiarism is defined in dictionaries as the "wrongful appropriation," "close imitation," or "purloining and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions," and the representation of them as one's own original work." From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
