Does anyone else see the irony? http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-0...-students.html

It is not surprising as it seems that many today have no ethics and don't see the harm in cheating. A great example is how a person at work told me about how her sister's oldest son came home from college to take the ACT for his sibling. That's why I am 100% behind the photo IDs for voting. Of course your point was how this grand law university is full of cheaters. Oh well, they'll just have to seal their records when they also go into politics.

does the irony have anything to do with all of the "watch me rip off malibu's surfgate" threads?

I think it's pretty interesting really. The article suggests similarities between take home essays. Could it be that someone shared their outline and then that person shared it with others, and....?

The assembly and synthesis of information is much different today than it was 20 years ago when I was in college (pre-web).

I think the irony is in this statement:

“Technology has shifted the way people think about intellectual property, the way people think about communicating with each other,”

Mainly because the real rise of social media, or a new way of communicating with each other if you will, started with facebook, which was started by a Harvard student, who, even more ironically, cheated and stole the idea for facebook from other Harvard students.

It's a take home test. How much could the answers possibly vary?

It happens at every University, so I am not surprised.

If a teacher gives a take home test and doesnt expect collaboration, they are both lazy and stupid.
