Plagiarism: a type of cheating that includes the presentation of another person’s work as your own, without proper acknowledgment of the source, with or without the creator’s permission, intentionally or unintentionally. By taking CTC courses, you agree that all required papers, exams, class projects or other assignments completed for credit may be submitted to SafeAssign or similar third parties to be reviewed and evaluated for originality and intellectual integrity.

In general, copyright is a form of legal protection given to content creators through the assignment of specific rights to works that qualify for protection. The main goals of copyright are to encourage the development of culture, science and innovation, while providing a financial benefit to copyright holders for their works, and to facilitate access to knowledge and entertainment for the public. Copyright provides a framework for relationships between the different players in the content industries, as well as for relationships between rights holders and the consumers of content. Copyright is a form of Intellectual Property, along with trademarks and patents in all countries, and other creations (such as trade secrets, sui generis database rights, rights of publicity and the like) that may vary from country to country.
