         The conception of the internet has provided students and teachers alike, easier access to information. It has also been the front-burner of many hot topics since its debut. One issue is that the there is a lot of negative information that can find on places on the internet (for example how to create a bomb or sexually explicit material). Another issue, in regards, to the internet is accessibility of non-reliable resources. It has become far to easy to hop onto a computer and “google” any topic you may doing research for, however anyone can create a website and unless the site has legitimate credentials there are possibilities that the information you are receiving is indeed false. There is also a common problem with copyright infringement. When someone simply copies and pastes from the interenet to their research it is a clear case of plagarism and/or copyright infringement. One last issue, amongst many others, is that of cheating and plagiarism. While completing my research I happened to find a website that allows you to order custom made research papers. Accessibility to these websites are creating controversies of cheating, especially amongst colleges.
