To have sex with a Book, Article, or the Internet, and therefore reproducing its words but with your last name.
Plagiarism involves 5 key Stages:

Stage 1: John is assigned a term paper.

Stage 2: John goes to the Library.

Stage 3: John "Checks Out" a book.

Stage 4: John "Reads Between the Lines".

Stage 5: A few paper cuts later… His paper is written.

To sum it all up…

One night of fun equals a finished paper.

An inexpensive and faster—but unethical—way to get published, by paying lip service to copyrights and robbing authors of their dues.
Plagiarism is often justified by novice authors and publishers in developing countries, who apparently are unable to contact the copyrights holders directly; or the authors don't reply to their e-mails.

Plagiarism is defined in dictionaries as the "wrongful appropriation," "close imitation," or "purloining and publication" of another author's "language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions," and the representation of them as one's own original work, but the notion remains problematic with nebulous boundaries.

Intellectual copyright theft of the worst kind, or passing off; a ripe forgery in the literary sphere; taking something one took the time and trouble to write out again in a slightly different form and claiming it as one’s own inimitable work as coming from the sweat of one’s brow, and so then, in some vital respect, it must be one’s own work, if only because if one took the time and trouble to do it again in a slightly different way then it must be one’s own intellectual copyright material to do with as one wishes, and so legally, in consequence, it is therefore still intellectual theft from its original owner, and decidedly so also, but then becomes serious only if it is found out.
It was not that the author disagreed with what was written one jot, as he has written it himself, it was that someone else had taken it and published it in his own name, which was plagiarism of the worst kind, and especially so since its original author had not been paid a penny for it either.
