To have sex with a Book, Article, or the Internet, and therefore reproducing its words but with your last name.
Plagiarism involves 5 key Stages:

Stage 1: John is assigned a term paper.

Stage 2: John goes to the Library.

Stage 3: John "Checks Out" a book.

Stage 4: John "Reads Between the Lines".

Stage 5: A few paper cuts later… His paper is written.

To sum it all up…

One night of fun equals a finished paper.

In class today Timmy had to write a report on the theory of evolution so he used plagiarism to help.

it's what most ignorant students especially middle schoolers like to do. it is the act of copying someone else's own hard work from the internet, a book, a novel, an essay, a research paper, etc. and claiming it's your own work. it is academic dishonesty or in other words academic fraud. the consequences to this kind of act if caught are getting a zero or failing grade, getting suspended or worse expulsion. so don't do it because everyone should know it's dishonest and it's not your work. things could be worse if caught, doing this kind of action can cost your chances getting into a good college or university and this can also cost you a job in the future.
brenda: hey victoria!
victoria: hey mom!
brenda: how was school today?
victoria: it was really good i got a a- on my in class essay.
brenda: well good for you! speaking of which, today i was looking at my students essays they submitted atturnitin.com and one of my student's essays came up as 76% plagiarized, therefore this student received a zero.
victoria: sucks for them! that's why i always never resort to plagiarism at any time.
brenda: good because if i find out you ever cheat in school i'm going to request your grade to your teacher as a zero.
victoria: well you don't have to worry about that.

Plagiarism is defined in dictionaries as the "wrongful appropriation," "close imitation," or "purloining and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions," and the representation of them as one's own original work, but the notion remains problematic with nebulous boundaries.

Intellectual copyright theft of the worst kind, or passing off; a ripe forgery in the literary sphere; taking something one took the time and trouble to write out again in a slightly different form and claiming it as one’s own inimitable work as coming from the sweat of one’s brow, and so then, in some vital respect, it must be one’s own work, if only because if one took the time and trouble to do it again in a slightly different way then it must be one’s own intellectual copyright material to do with as one wishes, and so legally, in consequence, it is therefore still intellectual theft from its original owner, and decidedly so also, but then becomes serious only if it is found out.
It was not that the author disagreed with what was written one jot, as he has written it himself, it was that someone else had taken it and published it in his own name, which was plagiarism of the worst kind, and especially so since its original author had not been paid a penny for it either.
