What is plagiarism ?
"Work made up of borrowings; unacknowledged copying of all or part of an original work." (CNRTL)
Plagiarism consists in claiming a content (words, images, tables, graphs) without prior consent of its author (or their beneficiaries), without citing its sources, with a view of passing it off as one’s own creation or work.
Whether it be intentional or through negligence, such an act, especially within a work of academic research, may have a momentous impact on one’s academic career.

The concept of forgery
What is forgery?
Copying an existing content (text, layout, colour, style, etc.) with a view of passing it off as one’s own, original and authentic work.
This constitutes a punishable offence, in that forgery may harm the copyrighted work, and the property rights in particular (citing, copying, adapting, translating rights).
