The Chronicle: Daily news: 01/11/2006 -- 01: "Student Who Sued Operator of Term-Paper Sites Settles Her Case Out of Court
By ANDREA L. FOSTER
A graduate student has settled her lawsuit against the operator of three term-paper Web sites that made her essay available online without her permission.
The student, Blue Macellari, is in her first year of business school at Duke University. She argued that the three Web sites infringed on her copyright, invaded her privacy, and damaged her reputation when they made her paper on South Africa accessible to subscribers. The Web sites, operated by Rusty R. Carroll, of Carbondale, Ill., are Free For Essays, Doing My Homework, and Free For Term Papers."
This is good news! Not everyone is willing to give away their hard work - or even charge for it.
