Welcome to the third session of the Hive Bootcamp, where I served as the main speaker. I decided to speak about plagiarism because it is one of the most crucial Hive rules that all new users must be aware of.
The video is a 22-minute recording of me speaking on the following subjects:
I made sure to point out that there is a POLICE FORCE on Hive that is responsible for checking for plagiarized posts and that they should not even consider plagiarizing. They should instead write about their emotions and anything that inspires them.
One of the meeting's newcomers raised the question of whether he would be prohibited from writing about certain online content if he saw it and expressed an interest in doing so. due to the fact that the author has already written on it.
I simply responded that not everyone can see things the same way; he might have additions to make or see things from a different angle than the author does. I said he could write about the same subject, but it should only reflect his feelings and thoughts without referencing the author's work. It would also be best if he gave credit to the author from whom he may have drawn inspiration so that he is not accused of plagiarizing.
Please feel free to watch the video to see additional details. I apologize for the noise in the video; the headphones I was wearing while recording are to blame. They are so terrible, and I had no idea. Thank you for watching!
