Type 1: Direct Plagiarism

Direct plagiarism is the word-for-word transcription of a section of someone else's work without attribution or citation.

The deliberate, direct plagiarism of someone else's work, even when that someone is not individually identifiable as a single person or group or people is unethical, academically dishonest, and grounds for disciplinary action, which can include expulsion.

One who plagiarizes in this fashion is letting readers or audiences believe he or she originally came up with the concepts even though he or she did not.
