Free culture cannot exist unless the talent and contributions of each person are recognized. Free culture does not mean replacing and taking credit for the talent of others, it means adding together authorships, adding together modifications and improvements. That said, “To plagiarise does not mean to *appropriate* (which refers to exploitation rights, but to *take credit for* the work of others (taking credit is precisely about the moral aspect of a work).

There will always be plagiarisation, just as there are still compulsive liars and heartless trolls. That’s humans for you.” Miquel Vidal dixit So, don’t panic, cite your sources.
