Student plagiarists

When I was poor, I wrote pastiche in considerable quantities (and even did a few sit-down-and-sweat exams) for music students who could afford not to fulfill their harmony and counterpoint requirements personally. I figured that if institutions issuing degrees were too lazy, stupid or corrupt to investigate a sudden improvement in a student’s grades or, for example, the inclusion of George Formby parodies in mock-Haydn piano sonatas, then, in a reasonably transparent market, their qualifications would rapidly become worthless anyway. This gentleman takes a more serious view. Strangely, while plagiarism is punishable in obscure American colleges, it continues to be tolerated by well-known Spanish newspapers.
