What's the origin of the word plagiarism?
Plagiarism (from the Latin "plagiarius," meaning "a plunderer" or, an older term, "plagium," meaning "kidnapping," or possibly "plagiare," which is "to wound") is the practice of claiming or implying original authorship of (or incorporating material from) someone else written or creative work, in whole or in part, into one's own without adequate acknowledgement. (Wikipedia)
Plagiarism is commonly define as “the unauthorized or unacknowledged appropriation of the words, graphic images, or ideas from another person”

“Though shalt not steal, but paraphrasing is ok” (Exodus 20:15, King James Bible, Teacher’s Edition)
 “The word began to be used in the English language sometime during the 1600s. While it originally meant to    literally kidnap someone, it gradually came to mean to pass off, in part of whole, someone else work as your own.” (The times of India article 7 May 2006)
