The following will amount to the infringement of an author’s moral rights: Failure to acknowledge the author where phrases or passages are taken verbatim (word-for-word) from a published or unpublished text. Use of a summary of a work which contains the ideas of others and presents the essence of an argument in language that condenses and compresses the original language of the source without acknowledging the author of the work. Using the patch-writing (cut-and-paste) method, where pieces of other person's works, including those taken from the Internet, are blended with one's own words and phrases without acknowledging the author of the source work. Dishonest practices may also amount to criminal offences, such as fraud, theft and criminal copyright liability. Such dishonest practices include the following: Copying information from another person (e.g. another student's assignment or portfolio) and submitting identical work. Buying an essay from a ghost-writing service and pretending that it is one's own work.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
