Plagiarism in Columbia University
Plagiarism is a very serious problem in the United States, because it reflects whether a person can achieve the standard to be honest. Also, if you copy others’ work or main ideas, I think that’s unfair to the person who comes up with these. Actually, this is kind of stealing. For these reasons, some students may lose their scholarships and get kicked out of school. And meanwhile, if you steal other people’s opinions that are used for your tests or the essay more than two times, you will be expelled from school and can never go back. Besides, it will bring many bed influences on your reputation. In that case, the school will force you to rewrite your paper and take the exam one more time. This might be written into your academic record and there is no school wants to get you in.
Such as the university of Columbia, they focus on and safeguard the ownership of copyright. Also, they need to protect this by themselves. The university of Columbia has a policy that admits the creator’s independent copyright. I think this can judge whether the university is ethical.
