The texts of the original site were transferred to this site in 2012, during the redesign. Being part of the pioneer sites on the web, I observe with regret that many freelancers or large groups or their partners are inspired to present their services and to confuse the issue they modify the text but the idea and the way of presenting it remains.

I hope you've looked at the link above, as it provides definitions from the Intellectual Property Code and from Geneviève Koubi, professor and author of books on plagiarism.

The Wikipedia definition traduced, "Plagiat" in French, (accessed on 05/10/2021) seems to me particularly relevant: "Plagiarism is a moral, civil or commercial fault, which can be penalized. It consists in copying an author or monopolizing the work of a creator in the field of arts without quoting him or her, as well as in being strongly inspired by a model that one omits, deliberately or by negligence, to designate. It is often equated with intangible theft. Some make a distinction between plagiarism, which is crude borrowing, and "markdown," where the text undergoes various modifications to confuse the issue."

To you dear colleague, I ask you not to base your articles on my texts or more precisely to quote me and remind you that all the content of this site is protected by copyright.

I therefore suggest you to use the "Harvard reference system" for all your quotations! I intend to start using it too. Of course, they are done for all electronic sources and therefore for website or blog articles.

There are generators that you can find through your favorite search engine, that said you should at least indicate: Last name, initials, (year of publication), "Title of the article", Available on: full url (date of access).
