Review: The humorous video is broaching the issue of copying things one-to-one. The main statement is: context matters. There are everyday situations when copying is obviously acceptable. On the other hand, copying the work of others without giving credit or correct referencing is completely unacceptable in the context of education, research, and science. This would be called cheating or plagiarism. The video raises the issue of and attracts attention towards good academic practice while it does neither give guidance how to do the referencing properly nor explicit criteria for the context but impressive examples.
