Nowadays every one of us may come across people who copy others’ books, articles or otherworks for their own benefits now and then.
This phenomenon is most harmful to the academic circle and even the whole society.
In my opinion, their harmfulness can be summarized in the following three respects.
In the first place, the rights of the original copyright holders are cruelly violated.
In the second place, people will lose the impulse to create if there is plagiarism here andthere.
Last but not least, plagiarism will lead to the degradation of the whole academic circle,whichincludes not only the publications, but also people’s minds.
In my opinion, the government and the citizens should join hands to put an end to plagiarism.
On the one hand, the government should punish the plagiarizers severely lest they harm theauthors again.
On the other hand, common citizens should report such harmful phenomena as soon aspossible.
Only by the joint efforts of the government and the common people can we do away withplagiarism.
