Students don't have to find old papers or copy passages off the Internet, either - they can buy ready-made papers for a couple of hundred dollars from Web sites likeaceyourpaper.com and schoolsucks.com. With unmanageable workloads and the knowledge that classmates are buying their B-pluses, the siren call can be difficult to ignore."

But for students who either don't know how to write an academic paper or want a quick fix, it offers nearly limitless opportunities to steal other people's work."
