    If the contents are about universal truth, then it will not be a plagarithm. e.g. distance between two cities. It will remain same with the meaning. When you rewrite such article, the meaning remains the same but still it is not plagarithm.

    ofcourse rewriting is plagiarism... you cant just rewrite others thoughts, ideas, give it a lil personal touch and present it to the world as yours.
    you have to do something different.. you can read, understand, follow, agree/disagree with someone's idea.. but the article/content should be based n your opinion

    I think, yes!
    Also, the big part in this context is what kinds of paper text you will use it! As a share, it will be not a plagiarist, as your mind it will be as an infringement of privacy rights! The detail information you can watch at
    www.plagiarismsearch.com!

    Also, I will recommend you to find a meaning of " plagiarism"!

    Article spinning came into use to help turn PLR articles into 'unique' articles. So whether one rewrites a PLR article manually or spins a PLR article, no plagiarism doesn't come into the equation.

    This does not apply to using someone else's content and then re-writing it so as to make it one's own. That is plagiarism (theft by another name) and the practice is not only frowned upon but it is an infringement of copyright and so illegal.

    Those who don't have the imagination, ability or inclination to write their own material or lack the moral fibre to respect other people's property will continue to steal other people's content until they are stopped either by a Google Content Take Down (DMCA) or prosecution.

    If you talk in terms of Google, it is not. Because if the rewriting is done well, you need not worry about any copyright issues. However, it may not drive high traffic to your blog or site.

    Is that what you mean, Sophieleo? Lokeshtegeek posted his content on page one of this thread and you posted the identical content as yours on page 8. Interesting.

    Next time, it would be much better if you simply quoted the original post with which you agree so that you give due credit to the person whose text you wish to re-present. Then it's not plagiarism but proper accreditation.

    I keep thinking that rewriting content considered to be a plagiarist, that is why I suggest you to write your own original content and as a result it will attract more readers to your blog!

    No, rewritting is different from "copy pasting".

    You can rewrite content but you must add your own material in it too and mix it up well that it looks totally indistinguishable from the original.

    Well, i'm not sure if i can call it plagiarism. If you're getting ideas from another person's works, then no it's not. What you can do is to kindly add your source of knowledge as a reference

    Well, it depends. If the topic is something general, I think there is not problem at all.

    Unless you are using some uncommon definition of "rewriting," I think rewriting is essentially plagiarism because you are not giving your own thoughts on the ideas, simply dressing it differently. Otherwise it would not be a "rewrite" but just your work.

    Well, if re-writing is plagiarism then how do we write again? you can re writing some topic but you need make it more unique, have more source about the fact. after write the article you can try using Plagiarism Checker Tool for your writing to make sure that was unique.

    You can rewrite content in your own words, using your own examples, if you have a unique perspective to add to that topic. You also have to link to the person who originally wrote the post or created whatever you are discussing. It would only be plagiarism if you rewrote the content without adding anything from your perspective or giving credit where it is due.

    I have no idea why you guys are making a big deal out of this. Or why OP is even considering "rewriting" an article.

    It's actually harder to rewrite an article so that it's "unique" in terms of moving around words and replacing stuff with synonyms.

    It's easier to just change the intro to your own, change the conclusion, then "rewrite" the main points how you want them. That's unique enough, tbh.

    It's like in school :p when people would legit try to fit so many definitions on a small piece of paper, or spend hours trying to fit all the formulas so that they'd fit on the sheet we could bring into the exam. If they just spent all that time studying, they'd do better and it wouldn't be so painful lol.

    Using teaspoons to drain a bathtub when you can use buckets instead.

    ACTUALLY - Here is FOOD for thought

    THE RAP / HIP HOP scene. = MIXTAPES - is using someone else BEAT and then making some new lyrics.

    Kinda like "re-writing articles"

    Any EVERYTHING has to be re written at some point, we are TAUGHT in school how to do "book reports" AKA re writes LOL

    Rewriting word per word (or sentence or paragraph) is like copying exactly what the original writer had in mind specially if it's only a single article source. You are better off having multiple resources for research, then write it in your own words.

    I think rewriting an article in an exact same way can be considered as copying. But if you read and understand the article and add your views into it, I think that will not be considered as Plagiarism.

    Do you guys have examples, like all those blogs just taking stuff from other blogs? Yeah definitely. I think people need to really need to study on the issues discussed.
