Important information about rules regarding plagiarism

The relevant paragraphs now read as follows:



A student shall be guilty of misconduct and may be dealt with in terms of this code, if he or she … in University context infringes a person's copyright or any other intellectual property right, including but not limited to plagiarism; in University context.......
  d.   plagiarises by stating, or implying, original authorship of someone else's written or creative work (words, images, ideas, opinions, discoveries, artwork, music, recordings, computer-generated work), and/or by incorporating such work or material, in whole or in part, into his or her own work without properly acknowledging or citing the source;
