As a current student :),

The cheating policy at my school is zero tolerance. Every instance of cheating is reported to the academic integrity officer. It provides enough disincentive for me not to cheat at least, perhaps not for others.

I believe the NYT article may have referred to http://www.turnitin.com/static/home.html. Apparently it scans the essay and then compares it to other content on the web, etc. Amazing technology, really. Some politician was also caught plagiarizing so there's another use for it ;)

Just some thoughts from the deep end.
