Senators may get away with it but students at Catholic schools certainly will not, the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines has reminded its students.

Senators may get away with it but students at Catholic schools certainly will not, the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines has reminded its students.

 

In a statement on CBCPNews, CEAP’s Fr. Gregorio Bañaga, C.M. reminded students that there is software that can detect plagiarism "in this ’copy-paste’ era." Bañaga said students should "attribute as a matter of justice because when you plagiarize, you are doing injustice by claiming somebody else's work as your own."

 

Bañaga, also president of Adamson University, had this to say about plagiarists: "They are without integrity because they copy something and attribute it to themselves. These persons are also lazy persons because instead of doing the research himself and articulating his thoughts, he just borrows other’s ideas and doesn’t even acknowledge the source of the information."
