There's a letter on page 2 of the CAUT Bulletin for November on
plagiarism via the Internet. Robert Dawson of Saint Mary's says that
the easy accessibility of materials from the Internet also means that
it's easy to catch plagiarists -- faculty can download the paper too.
I assume he's referring to papers available through such
sites as "schoolsucks", rather than to materials more widely
dispersed on the web.
