Also note, if you '...use substantial verbatim excerpts of words (quotes) or reproductions of graphs, tables, etc. that appear in other works, then not only must proper credit be given, but permission from the originator and/or rights holder must also be obtained. In a case such as this, as long as proper credit is given, the issue does not appear to be one of plagiarism. But also, in this
case if the permission is not obtained, then the issue becomes one of copyright violation, not of plagiarism, and that is a completely different issue.' (quote from (and my thanks to) Richard Telofski of Kahuna Content)
