Essay 1

Based on parts 1 and 7 of Exercise 3.4 in our textbook, compare the GMU Honor Code ( and our textbook's explanations of plagiarism and intellectual property issues) with the stated purposes and disclaimers on several online "paper mills," such as 123helpme.com, schoolsucks.com, 1millionpapers.com, or other such sites (look for the site's FAQ or Terms of Service statements).


How do the statements on the term paper sites compare to the Honor Code? What are the similarities? How do they differ? What conclusions can you draw? Write a 3 -5 page account of your research.
