Somewhere Between R & S But Only Due to a Technicality

...is where I am on the Official Alphabetical List of Author Success.

This is a tad odd, since I have not sought a career in writing (which is probably fortuitous, not the least because I get no royalties).

It seems that a paper I wrote on Japan's security challenges for a sociology class has been published by the instructor in a collection of essays

If she didn't ask your permission, then this is violation of your copyright. (And under the Berne convention, copyright is automatic unless explicitly waived.)

If it doesn't have your byline, then it also plagiarism.

2 Taking the class involved signing a waiver. This is common in undergraduate classes today as papers are sometimes used as examples or entered into contests or whatnot.

3 What exactly did the waiver waive? Can you reprint it yourself, or has she tied up the rights? "My teacher ate my homework" is a new one on me.

4 On the one hand, it is good to have an article for your vita.
OTOH, that "common practice" is crap. Academia does not absolve from fair trade practice. Grad students are commonly used as a paper mill by lazy profs, but undergrads? That is sinking low.
