Washington Post: Artful Deception

Washington Post: Artful Deception -- "College students who pay somebody else to write their term papers can be -- and often are -- expelled. [...] There's a word for it when you persuade people to pay money for something under false pretenses: fraud. [...] But publishers seem exempt. These days, entire books are written by people other than their purported authors. Only it's not called fraud. It's called ghostwriting. And it's a common practice in the literary trade."
