Essay Writing No Plagiarism

The widespread availability of high-quality information on the internet today makes it possible, and in many cases profitable, to pass off others’ materials as one’s own. Whilst for individuals, the temptations to plagiarize are high, especially where the risk of being exposed are low, there are sound business, financial and legal reasons why organizations ought to build defenses against this practice.

Firstly, and somewhat obviously, organizations need to worry about the liability they might incur should the fact of plagiarism come to light. Whilst the commission of plagiarism could have been the solitary mischief of an employee, it is the organization which bears the responsibility for all acts. Apart from having to compensate the original authors of the plagiarized text, the organization could expose itself to expensive litigation from irate clients, whose interests may have suffered due to their mistaken faith in the legitimacy of the works supplied to them.

Secondly, organizations suffer indirectly when incidences of plagiarism by it are exposed. This is particularly true of organizations whose sole marketable product is the delivery of original content. The volume and quality of business such organizations can attract is directly proportionate to the reputation for originality that they enjoy amongst the community of buyers. Although the path to establishing an organization’s reputation is arduous and slow, it is a relatively simpler affair to shatter an already established reputation. A single stray incidence of plagiarism surfacing can leave an organization’s reputation in tatters and it may lack the resilience to recover.

Thirdly, and possibly the most easily ignored problem with plagiarism is the ethics of the practice. It is possible that routine supply of plagiarized materials by an organization may go unnoticed by the client. No liability may yet accrue to the organization. However, it does not mask the dishonesty of the activity from the organization itself. If not checked, it is bound to affect the levels of pride which the organization’s membership is able take in being associated with it. Organizations which intend to maintain themselves and grow can only afford to ignore this at their own peril.

Lastly, plagiarism is an attitudinal defect in a person and speaks to the comfort with which they are able to execute dishonest actions. Whilst an organization may pass on plagiarized material to clients without attracting liability, it will also have to be conscious that the act of dishonesty exhibited by its employees may manifest itself in ways other than on paper.

In sum, our company cannot supply our clients with plagiarized papers because we cannot afford to. It hurts us financially, which is bad. It hurts our reputation which is worse. Worst of all, it sends the wrong signal to our own employees when we permit their plagiarism to go unchecked, and this eats our business hollow from within.
