Hey guys. JTH here. I'm going to post here about plagiarism.
It is stealing someone's intellectual property without credit to the original owner. It is considered as academical dishonesty.
Plagiarism is not the same as copyright infringement. Copyright infringement is violating the rights of a copyright holder, while plagiarism is claiming false authorship of a certain intellectual property.
Well, stealing original ideas or intellectual things from other video games is plagiarism. To avoid it, we must add the phrase: "We do not own this (intellectual property). Credits to (company)."
If you want to add something to emphasize this discussion, just post a comment below. Thank you!
