    In these days, most of us do copy paste to reduce time instead of typing it manually. Holding Control+A Control+C then Control+V might be easy but you need to know When Copying is become Illegal ? Copying is right when you include below your paper or worksheet who wrote the article or idea and where you get that article or idea you copied. Copying requires permission before copying it. Based on my research, Derivative Work or article or idea you revised by changing of words is also considered a copying. Most of schools are against of plagiarism that's why they are strict in scanning projects and paper works. So If you attempted to copy in the internet, in google or in another search engines, also credit where you get it from or who wrote it just to make sure that your procedures you do in copying are legal and right.

    Yes its illegal, especially for those who pirating a movies and videos.
    It's illegal in the eye of our law, of our government.
    But why some people keep doing this job ? even if its illegal ?
    Maybe our government know that problems, but why they didnt do some action against corruption and poverty ?
    Maybe they're just a blinded people.

    To legally use parts of someone else's writing, you must put it in quotations and cite your source. Also, you have to use it in a way that enhances your own writing. You can't just rephrase another person's writing, you have to form your own opinions and gather facts for yourself. Once you do that, you can use small snippets of someone else's work (with citation) to help bolster your argument or description.

    Anything other than that is plagiarism, and can get you expelled from school or fired from your job. If you ever need help on how to properly cite something (or want to see examples of this correctly done), I would recommend checking Purdue Online Writing Lab (OWL). They have plenty of resources to help you write academic and scientific papers.

    Also, when I say "you", I mean it in a general sense. I'm not targeting you, specifically.

    Copying is illegal when you try to copy other people's work without acknowledging the owner or worst, owning what you've copied. A person should always be mindful of giving credits when trying to mimic someone else's work. It is not rightful to claim what is not yours.

    Copying becomes illegal when it comes to documents. Example, you've made a fake documents, you have copied it from the original for your own purpose. When you're caught of that illegal actions, may be you will be undergo to some punishment or be detained to jail. Another is in school, if you were caught with a teacher copying from your classmate, may be you will be suspended because it is illegal. And finally, in terms of writing, copying becomes illegal when you own it as your own works because it is now called plagiarism.

    Copying becomes illegal when you get some information on the internet without even giving credits from the owner by giving the source or links there. As we all know plagiarizing is a crime and we must be aware with it. You must give credits to the owner once you get some information over the internet. Don't own someone's idea for it's not a joke to create one like that. Give credits guys!

    Copyright is a legal right created by the law of a country that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights for its use and distribution. This is usually only for a limited time. The exclusive rights are not absolute but limited by limitations and exceptions to copyright law, including fair use. Now copyright became infringement when someone else is getting that person with out permission. It is illegal to copy large sections of someone else's copyrighted work without permission, even if you give the original author credit
