Duke University Graduate Student Files Suit Against Website for Selling Her Term Paper Without Permission

A Duke University graduate student is suing the operator of a website that posts term papers and other research materials available for purchase by students. Blue Macellari contends that someone posted her undergraduate term paper on South Africa without her permission on a website owned and run by Rusty Carroll.  Carroll owns and operates several such sites, including Doingmyhomework.com. Read more on the case, possibly the first of its kind, here, in a story about Macellari's representation, and here, in an AP story about the filing of the suit. The Center for Academic Integrity, mentioned in the AP story, can be found here.
