I entirely agree. As you said, the concept of plagiarism should not be broadened to such a degree that it becomes absurd. The most of us write about topics that have already been written hundreds of times. To write in a new way about familiar things is increasingly becoming a challenge, but I think there's always some sort of new "lands" to explore and I see myself as an explorer. 😊

Lada \ud83c\udfe1 Prkic, as I said in the piece, I think we have to avoid becoming neurotic about plagiarism. Very few of us present truly unique and original ideas, but rather build upon a large body of knowledge and opinion that has preceded our own work. Consequently, I've come to think more and more about the three tell-tale signs of plagiarism listed in the article. Violation of copyright on internet-published images remains a difficult one for me. For it is often impossible or at least impossibly time consuming to trace back an image to its creator, as Google, for example, credits the last user of the image, and may end up with the same image attributed to half a dozen different "creators." Personally, I try in good faith to check for the creator's credit, when I am not using a free or paid-for image. If I can't do that successfully, I will credit GoogeImages. The point is that the images used are not being incorporated into a work for pay. And clearly, if there is a creator, that creator has not been sufficiently concerned to ask Google to drop the image from GoogleImages. When, however, an advertisement is involved, I completely avoid using any image which is not either mine or for which I've received permission to use. Cheers!

One of the essential elements of the Berne Convention is adherence to the principle of the automatic creation of a "creator's copyright" upon the publication of any work that falls within the covered categories. Registration of copyright generally bears upon the issue of how readily and how quickly the holder of a violated copyright can secure remediation through the courts of the relevant signatory nation(s). It is important not to confuse registration of copyright (a specific legal action) with the de facto creation of copyright.(automatic accrual under the terms of the Berne Convention).

Stealing the words of others already have become the serious problem in the academic communities. Even one of the ministers in the Croatia’s government is recently accused of plagiarism in his Ph.D. theses, by a prominent Croatian scientist Ivan Đikić. Giving credit when needed is responsible behavior in both life and social media. When it comes to the latter, I think that many people don't understand what it means and they assume that everything on the web is free. This especially applies to the use of photos and images. We all do this when sharing pictures or memes without giving the credit. The more I read about that, the more I became “paranoid” when writing blog posts. Though I write in my own words, I’ve become more concerned about unintentionally copying some others’ ideas. I’ve even started using some apps for checking posts for plagiarism. Phil, what do you think about that?

Don, most copyright laws throughout the "civilized" world are uniform by treaty. For list of international treaties, see: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/writers-concise-guide-copyright-trademark-patent-phil-friedman

Very useful Phil Friedman I wonder if the Canadian copyright law is similar. I shall have to do a little investigation although I suspect we mirror our big brother to the south.
