RE: Plagiarism?

Quick answer:

If you make it clear that you are not the author of the papers and indicate who the real authors are then you are not guilty of plagarism.

What the copywrite issues are is a much longer answer. I'm not sure that a definative answer exists but if there is a copywrite notice attached it should not be removed, that's for sure.

It depends on what your definition of "is" is.

BTW a question to all the ethics guru's...

A lot of people have put out lots of papers, articles on their website, which can be downloaded for personal use. Would there be a ethics violation if I were to make a HTML page on my file system and access these articles through that (sort of a pseudo INTRAnet). This would make it easy for me to click on the link and access the information rather than search through the directories? Is this ethics violation? Remember that the whole article is "as is" i.e. all copyright info etc is still intact. Let me repeat it is INTRANET, not available to anyone unless you have privs to the directory.

Please enlighten me.

Once you lose your ethics, the rest is easy. :(
