We presume she got an ‘A’ Blue Macellari wrote the term paper back in 1999 while studying abroad, so the Duke University graduate student didn’t understand why it was on the Internet-or why it was for sale. Now she’s suing the operator of Web sites selling her paper and seeking more than $100,000 for copyright infringement, invasion of privacy and damage to her reputation. Macellari’s attorney, Evan Andrew Parke, filed suit in federal court in East St. Louis, Ill., against Rusty Carroll; his Carbondale, Ill., company R2C2 Inc.; and South Carolina-based Digitalsmiths Corp. No one answered the telephone at a number listed for Carroll, and Digitalsmiths did not return a call from The Associated Press. Macellari alleges she learned from a friend that her paper was posted on Web sites registered to Carroll’s company and contained notices that the sites own the copyright to the papers. Furthermore, her name was listed. Macellari never provided the Web sites with the papers or gave them permission to post them, Parke said. “They didn’t just post it. They are making an explicit claim that they own this paper,” he said.

Among the suspects was Giraldo Wong, who, prosecutors said, was discovered with two Cuban grassguits in his underwear at Miami airport after he returned from Cuba in May.
