The Center for Academic Integrity based at Duke University studies issues of academic integrity including trends in cheating and plagiarism across the United States. Its studies show that Internet plagiarism is a widespread problem among high school and college students. There are several types of Internet plagiarism. The most common way for a student to plagiarize material from the Internet involves copying material from a variety of independent Web sites and compiling them into an "original" document. A less common type involves a student obtaining a paper from a paper mill.
; however, the use of surveillance cameras in schools has also become a controversial subject over privacy. Webcams are a more recent form of camera and live recording device.

(Lynch, 2011) On the surface, it would appear that we may never find the cure to plagiarism, especially with the rise of universal access to information on the Internet. It is my position that this simply isn’t true; a prescription exists to eradicate the virus of plagiarism: 1) educate students early and often about the dangers of plagiarism; 2) identify and utilize a set of tools that aid the student in avoiding accidental plagiarism; and 3) encourage and reward students who strive for academic honesty. Counterclaim on Plagiarism According to Nels Griffin, the pandemic of plagiarism is a hoax. He asserts in his paper that nearly every thought at this point is unoriginal; he goes so far as to say that, in part, all new thought is the derivative of the work of another mind. (Griffin, 2009) Some credence can be made for this argument in that most academic work rests on the shoulders of giants.
In contrast, teachers use the Internet to assign homework, develop classes, and to determine if a student cheated or plagiarized on an assignment. Supposedly, the development of new technology like smart phones is to blame for the increase in student dishonesty. Recent studies indicate "more than 75% of college undergraduates had cheated at least once”. Devices like IPhones, Androids, I pads, and laptops are directly responsible for the increase in the student’s misconduct. Sadly, the creation of smart phones is not the real reason for students cheating, they are merely an adjunct to the crime, and the real culprits are the students.
