Andy,

Take a look at this article on Power to Learn.com for another perspective on turnitin.com. at http://www.powertolearn.com/articles/parenting_with_technology/article.shtml?ID=47

Andy, it’s funny that you and I have both been covering this case. I thought at the time that fair use would be a slippery issue for the students to overcome, and it turned out that was one of the decisive factors.

Great post, Mike. Thanks for sharing it!

Wow! This sounds like a slippery subject! Well the way I see it plagerism is plagerism, unfortunately it seems as though teachers do not have any protection or leverage anymore. The laws that have been created can sometimes turn things into monsters. After all what about the fair use law?
