Copyright Enfringement Vs Plagiarism Comment Vs Guest Post - Part One

Published on 10/15/2017

As I looked around IBOtoolbox this morning I decided that in order to receive credits I would take a look at IBO Answers.


There were two questions that caught my attention and I will address them in two parts:


  1. What is the difference between Copyright infringement and Plagiarism?
  2. What is the difference between adding a Comment and a Guest Post.


Let's then take a look at my response: 

1. COPYRIGHT - Also referred as Intellectual Property

Copyright infringement is the use of orginal works, documents, articles etc. without permission. This could become a court case.

To expand. Original works are works of art, music, writings authored by someone whose creative  thought produces works that others can relate to; economic, legal or scientific works

If I may use as an example one of my countrymen..Robert Nestor Marley, fondly known as Bob Marley, wrote many original songs that is known in almost every corner of the world over. His music moves across the divide of color and race, because in one way or another his music touches lives and people  take ownership  according to their circumstances and it impacts their lives.

Music is food for the soul and people regardless of language color, creed or race can relate in some way.  The question is: Does their taking advantage of those songs constitute copyright infringement? When you hear the words and the music set to the words there is no question of its origin. What I believe in a case such as this that is required is some form of legal Royalty agreement so that the artist benefits.


Some artist are poor, making little financial gains from their original works while others make a small fortune from the said work.

Let's look at Plagiarism

Plagiarism is the blatant copying of someone's original work, without acknowledgement, or attribution,  and passing it off as your own.


We are created  with that inner substance that makes us think.

Here are some thoughts on what is Plagiarism:

On the Internet this is rampant, and I have seen repostings that are quite familiar.  We have to use our own voices. We all have that original thought, the power within to understand and put into our own words our understanding of what we've read, agreed with or heard, if only we give it room to breathe and to surface.

Even though it could be argued that it is complimentary, certainly not passing it off as your own; that our works are governed by our exposure, the culture and environment, if you quote verbatim (word for word) what  someone says or write without their permission, and giving recognition, it is plagiarism.

We have that thinking substance that even though we will agree with everything someone says, we can express it differently through understanding and thoughts on the subject, yet sending the same message.

It is one of the reasons why debates were so popular in schools. It encouraged you to think and express those thoughts, and to read to build knowledge, learning to argue constructively. Under those circumstances you debated each others thinking so there was no need for plagiarism.

So when you write give mention or attribution to the source of your information without claiming it as your own.

I appreciate the time you've taken to read my press release. Thank you.
