The World Wide Web has given students unprecedented access to legitimate and illegitimate education resources. Steinberg gives an oversight of the implications of it on present-day higher education. He thus describes how, in the U.S., internet-based research and term paper mills have become a booming industry, even though sixteen States have made it illegal since 1995 to sell academic research and term papers. On this basis, he raises the question: how can legislators, professors or administrators rightfully tell if a submitted piece of academic work was personally written or professionally subcontracted?
