عنوان مقاله [English]
Plagiarism means copying intellectual work belonging to another and passing off it as own. This is overlapping with Intellectual Property Law. Hence, many academics think these two terms as synonyms, but this is a false impression, and all instances of plagiarism, such as the use of the idea of another person, or self-plagiarism, are not subject to intellectual property law. The present paper tries to investigate the elements and enforcements of its implementation by analytical-descriptive approach and Library- empirical methodology (reviewing Sentences of Disciplinary Board). Finally, it can be concluded that plagiarism is just part of intellectual property law, but other parts are also subject to an independent system that can lead to administrative penalties.
