Here's Stanford's code:

"Plagiarism and the Honor Code

"Plagiarism is the act of presenting the words or ideas of someone else as your own without proper acknowledgment of the source. The term source includes not only books, periodicals and websites, but also lecture notes, drawings, films and other formats of information, such as computer programs, music and graphics. If you do not credit the author, you are committing theft.

"Be aware that plagiarism includes much more than just copying someone's work. Though it may be unintentional, quoting, paraphrasing or adapting material, and presenting someone else's idea, opinion, or theory as your own, are all examples of plagiarism.

"Remember that ethical scholarship demands that you acknowledge the original author.

"Honor Code

"At Stanford, all students are subject to the Honor Code regarding academic conduct. Adopted in 1921, the Honor Code shifts the responsibility to the students for not giving nor receiving unpermitted aid in any work that will be used by instructors as a basis for grading. Violation of the Honor Code results in serious penalties, so familiarize yourself with it.

"Interpretations of the Stanford Honor Code
underscores the intent of the Dual Submission Policy which prohibits submitting the same or substantially similar work in more than one class without the approval of the instructor."

Has Elizabeth Warren engaged in plagerism?

What have you heard?
