Is selling or buying an essay for a university course illegal?

"University students could be fined or handed criminal records for plagiarized essays", reads the headline of a Telegraph story here.  Apparently, over 20,000 students a year have purchased such services, and PhD dissertations only go for 6,75o pounds sterling (less than $10,000).  Read the Telegraph story   Ireland is also propsoing criminal sanctions - read teh story here at the Irish Times.

Renown economist, Dr. Dan Ariely, tested the quality of these services and published some examples here.
