Memory and Imagination

If you remember something wrong, is the label memory still accurate? Does the label of memory necessitate a 1:1 correspondence with the past? If not 1:1, how much correspondence with the past is necessary for us to still be comfortable using the label of memory? More importantly, if we can talk about a memory being in error, or even completely fabricated, then at what point can we then say there is a meaningful difference between memory and imagination?
