Intellectual Property:Intellectual property is any product of human intellect that is protected by law from unauthorized use by others.

Copyright: legal protection from exploitation for the authors of creative intellectual works such as books, articles, emails, and web-based information, photographs, art, graphics, music, and software.

Plagiarism:"Plagiarism occurs when a writer deliberately uses someone else’s language, ideas, or other original (not common-knowledge) material without acknowledging its source."

Fair Use: Fair use allows for copyrighted works to be used or reproduced without infringement on copyright for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching (including multiple copies for classroom use), scholarship, or research.
