Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm an Intellectual Property litigation attorney here to assist you.
If you take someone's ideas or works and try to claim them as your own, it is plagiarism. Here's a good link that discusses the legal aspects of plagiarism: http://definitions.uslegal.com/p/plagiarism/
Also, if the form is copyright protected, you could be sued for that as well.
Thus, your best course of action is to create your own individual form instead of using someone else's - unless you get permission.
I read the information on the web site you provided, so then next question is.. If you are not selling these forms can you still be sued. Example: Application For Hire, you add your logo, add some extra questions, and use that form for hiring is this still illegal?
What I am understanding is if you copy the information and sell the forms you can be sued is this correct if your not selling the form are you still liable?
