Subject: RE: plagiarism dilemma
I'm pretty sure the formal definition of plagiarism is "passing off someone else's work as your own". At least that's the one used when I was working as a lecturer in a University.

Copyright is slightly different as it's a legal term and even if you acknowledge the source, it's still a copyright infringement if you do not get permission from the copyright owner to use the material.
