  1. You could be punished for plagiarism if someone copies your work, be careful! Even though you didn't put it up there yourself, you can still be severely punished for not taking responsibility for your work and allowing others to copy it.

  2. Contact course hero to have it taken down... If your work is in it you can claim ownership over it and when you upload to the site it makes you check off that the uploader has ownership so it would have violated their terms of policy

  3. I have a zombie resumes that I can't get rid of because google keeps caching them. Fuck google.

  4. Even if they won't take it down, you have a moral right (legal term; it's a real legal right you can sue over) to anonymity; you could ask that they take your name off it.
