Lets start with a definition:

Plagiarize \'pla-je-,riz also j - -\ vb -rized; -riz·ing vt [plagiary] : to steal and pass off (the ideas or words of another) as one's own : use (a created production) without crediting the source vi: to commit literary theft: present as new and original an idea or product derived from an existing source - pla·gia·riz·er n

FROM: Webster's New Collegiate Dictionary 9th ed, (Springfield, Ma: Merriam 1981, p. 870).


If you copy and paste things from another website for the use of informational purposes, please PLEASE PLEASE post the site where you got the information. I have noticed a trend of threads that seem to have information for the intent of teaching others about surrogacy. These posts were taken from websites and posted on to here. Technically this is plagiarism and can get people into trouble. Especially if the author of the website has his material copyrighted.

So if you plan to start threads with the intent of sharing information for the purpose of teaching others about surrogacy, then please cite your work (if you don't know what that means----it means to put down where you got the information from). Put a link into the message so others can read the original author's work.

And just so you know, the information that I have posted so far, is completely original and written by me. The information is knowledge learned over the past 6.5 years in the surrogacy world, actively as a TS, giving birth in 2007 to a baby boy. And now as a matched GS, going on our third transfer attempt.
