Declarations of Non-Plagiarism

It's kinda funny (but in a befitting sort of way) that our Intellectual Property assignment requires us to attach a declaration of non-plagiarism to it. I hadn't quite thought about it until Sandra offered to let me plagiarise her non-plagiarism notice.

I now know that I would not be liable for infringement of that because she gave me the right to. And in any case, it's not certain if copyright can arise in anything as short and simple as a 1 liner about how I confirm that I have not plagiarised that the whole work was written by me, etc etc. See the Devico / Hayrer backpack case, the exact name of which I am far too lazy to look up.

Anyhoo, this was the conversation that sparked it off:

Who wants to plagiarise my plagiarism notice?:
eh we shld all put the same plagiarism notice

en ying "my IP assignment is turning into a conspiracy theory":
haha
i haven't even thought about that yet

Who wants to plagiarise my plagiarism notice?:
hahaha
uwant?

en ying "my IP assignment is turning into a conspiracy theory":
i don't mind

Who wants to plagiarise my plagiarism notice?:
I have not, with intent to deceive, represented the work of another person as my own in this essay, or represented as my own the entire essay or work of another, whether the material so represented constitutes a part or the entirety of the work submitted.

en ying "my IP assignment is turning into a conspiracy theory":
i find it strange that we haven't been given a standard one

Who wants to plagiarise my plagiarism notice?:
haha
yah lor
how they expect us to come up with one

en ying "my IP assignment is turning into a conspiracy theory":
like, how creative do they want us to be?

Who wants to plagiarise my plagiarism notice?:
then we can just put loopholes where we like
haha

en ying "my IP assignment is turning into a conspiracy theory":

Who wants to plagiarise my plagiarism notice?:
"I DIDNT COPY PPL HOR"

Who wants to plagiarise my plagiarism notice?:

en ying "my IP assignment is turning into a conspiracy theory":
(university of london press v. university tutorial press)

Who wants to plagiarise my plagiarism notice?:

Geeky law students, we are.

But seriously, how many non-plagiarism notices can you come up with? I will buy Milo-peng for the author of my favourite one.
