Turnitin.com and copyright

"Students at McLean High School in Fairfax County, Va., and the Tucson Unified School District in Arizona filed a lawsuit in October 2006 arguing that Turnitin.com committed copyright infringement when it stored digital copies of students' essays in its database."

This case has finally been settled. The federal courts have decided that it is not against copyright to use these papers for comparison. The whole story is here.

Very interesting! Especially if you are a school who uses turnitin.com!
