Plagiarism Lines Blur for Students in Digital Age

"Plagiarism Lines Blur for Students in Digital Age." The New York Times / Trip Gabriel.
New York: The New York Times Online, August 1st 2010.
"And at the University of Maryland, a student reprimanded for copying from Wikipedia in a paper on The Great Depression said he thought its entries — unsigned and collectively written — did not need to be credited since they counted, essentially, as common knowledge."
Makes for a very interesting discussion indeed.
