Default Can I just copy this?

I've just found this site www.as400-news.com, could I just borrow the technical
information from the site or do I need some kind of permission?. I am writing a project for school.

James

Default Re: Can I just copy this?

What type of school? High school or college, either way copying it straight from the page is plagiarism and that's typically frowned upon haha. If it's a college paper believe me they will search your paper online to see if you plagiarized anything. High school they probably won't but you should still try to re-word it as much as you can.

Edit: My previous college had the ability to upload a paper onto a computer system and it would automatically search for plagiarism on the net.

My school used http://www.turnitin.com/static/index.html and it was a decent resource for me during the course that required it. I was a little irked at first about the premise, but it did support my writing.

Look up things online like APA citing. There's a lot of great information out there that will help you avoid being labeled as a copycat (or worse, getting expelled).
