In using secondary research, writers need to remember that knowledge develops socially in a give-and-take process akin to conversation. In this kind of social situation, it is a matter of both personal integrity and academic honesty to acknowledge others, especially when you use their words or ideas.

And writers who unfairly use copyrighted material found on the World Wide Web or in print are legally liable for their acts.
