Students Protest Turnitin.com | Sunday, 24 September 2006 | 12:41
Students are protesting their school's use of anti-plagiarism site Turnitin.com, which checks papers they've written against a database of twenty-two million other papers.
"Members of the new Committee for Students' Rights said they do not cheat or condone cheating. But they object to Turnitin's automatically adding their essays to the massive database, calling it an infringement of intellectual property rights."
Isn't it an infringement on the student's work, to have their work submitted to a database, and stored there for future "cheating" tests?
Tired of paying for new batteries all the time? Tired of searching for the charger for your rechargeable batteries? Worry not, because these new AA batteries will recharge direct from your USB port! This is such a cool idea, that I cant believe that no one has done it before.
