    If rewriting is illegal, school will be banned.

    Haha nah man knock yourself out. if you rewrite it, with negligible plagiarism then it is actually your own work.

    your own intellectual property, using the resources found online. nothing wrong with that, or they better lock me up!!

    If you're doing a re-write that's fine, just ensure it's not just swapping a few words or letters here and there.

    You're posting this in the White Hat section but I want to welcome you to the world of black hat my friend.

    Everybody steals. Look up the book "Steal like an Artist" and give it a read if you have some time.

    Rewrite... Basically you're using the original article as reference. If the person you are using is a writer, they should be able to rewrite without an issue. Tell them to randomize the paragraph structure though, meaning, convey the same message, but don't look like you've simply spun the adjectives.

    Technically, rewriting content from a third party without their consent is in fact illegal (I'm pretty sure, at least in the US I reckon).

    However, like many legal matters the true question is, will you face charges?
    In your context, of course not...

    This is Picasso's not Gates'.

    And I don't like people quoting this with proud, most likely people have badly interpreted this quote and freely use it to justify their lack of creativity. There's a difference between "inspiration" and downright stealing other people's creativity and work and using it as their own.

    Half the internet is re-written articles. Do it, everyone does it.

    after rewriting should check for plagarism. if its less like 10-15% then no problem.
