Q. Is Copyright Infringement and Plagiarism the same?
No. Copyright infringement and plagiarism are different. Plagiarism is passing off someone's work as your own.
Plagiarizing is possible without infringing the copyright- such as using another's ideas without proper crediting, even though you do not copy their words, or if you utilize a work with an outdated copyright. It is also possible to infringe without plagiarizing. Properly citing the work you are copying does not exempt you from liability for infringement.
