Hi Mahi > nice topic
No acknowledgement means you are presenting it as your own original work and that equals to plagiarism.
Whether it's a movie/book/music/play or any form of art .. if u have been inspired .. state it .. if u are using someone's work > state that also.
Do you have any examples of any book and/or other written material that's plagiarized?
I have seen many articles over the internet being copied and pasted and the original authors are not acknowledged.
Many Indian movie songs are copies of western songs/tunes > they are not acknowledged
Movies are made on concepts that have been created by some1 else, just coz that's what ppl demand? but no1 acknowledges the original version.
How many times can someone be inspired by an idea before it becomes too stale? Can you think of any books that deal with a topic in the same way, and you wonder where is the creativity?
Ideas are used and extra spice and masala's are added to make books/movies more interesting .. even music, old songs are remixed .. we all know that its not original but it sells, be it original or not.
Creativity is there in the sense that u get something that has been created already and use creativity to enhance it as ur own .. however, we lack "original" creativity these days.
Any additional comments are always welcome!
Yes we see/read/hear > same/similar things again and again .. but there are also original minds out there who come up with new and original work .. these are the work that actually get noticed and stay in our minds for a long time .. they even make history.

Plagarism is when the idea is ripped off clearly which i think is rather sneaky
I hate to mention this but the book THE ALCHEMIST closely resembles a tale from the Arabian Nights..... I have read the book and the story and the similarity is really uncanny... I do not mean to suggest plagarism or anything but the similarity is really uncanny.....
