In my mind, compared with traditional media forms, the Internet is the one that may let people neglect the issue of plagiarism easily. When we surf the Internet, we usually want to get the information we need and seldom have time to pay attention to whether this source plagiarizes others. From the view of intellectual property rights, of course the issue of plagiarism should be valued and any kind of plagiarism should be stopped. But as I see, due to the particularity of the Internet and Netizens, the form of citations can be simplified. Once a source can be indicated as the one quoted from a certain place, I think it is enough for the Internet.
Actually, to be honesty, I have to say the online situation of plagiarism in the U.S. is much better than China. In some Chinese websites, the issue of plagiarism is usually ignored. Netizens seldom think about this and consider it as a crucial problem. The prevention of online plagiarism still has a long way to go.
