An inexpensive and faster—but unethical—way to get published, by paying lip service to copyrights and robbing authors of their dues.
Plagiarism is often justified by novice authors and publishers in developing countries, who apparently are unable to contact the copyrights holders directly; or the authors don't reply to their e-mails.

To have sex with a Book, Article, or the Internet, and therefore reproducing its words but with your last name.
Plagiarism involves 5 key Stages:

Stage 1: John is assigned a term paper.

Stage 2: John goes to the Library.

Stage 3: John "Checks Out" a book.

Stage 4: John "Reads Between the Lines".

Stage 5: A few paper cuts later… His paper is written.

To sum it all up…

One night of fun equals a finished paper.

Plagiarism is defined in dictionaries as the "wrongful appropriation," "close imitation," or "purloining and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions," and the representation of them as one's own original work, but the notion remains problematic with nebulous boundaries.
