I wanted to say something similar, and you said it better, but I also wanted to point out that the particulars in each of the GP's list are also different: namely, it's not generally permissible in business to pass others' work off as your own, and in fact in "business" there are often legal protections against doing just that, depending on the situation (rather than violating some kind of academic code of conduct, you may be committing fraud or violating a patent or license). Obviously it varies, but for me the more equivalent situation is when you base a survey or analysis on other sources, which you properly interpret and cite; this is more or less what you might do in "business" as well.
Also, "Cheating - adjusting grades == Business - Creative accounting." Only someone who totally does not understand accounting, and whose understanding of the field is based on punditry and headline-skimming could possibly think this. There are a very large number of rules about what constitutes proper accounting, rules which, in many cases, can't be broken without violating the law--again, a much more serious infraction than "cheating". Are all criminals caught? All incompetent CPAs delicensed or sued? Of course not. But to think that because some criminals get away with crime we should encourage or tolerate some kind of corresponding behavior among students is an attitude that boggles the mind.
To be honest, I'm a little disappointed at how little emphasis is placed on rote learning these days. Analysis and "teaching people to think" is well and good, but without a solid foundation of factual knowledge--not a list of Google results, but actual interrelated nuggets of knowledge that reside in ones' mind--the quality of analysis, induction and insight is poor. Also, while we have obviously made many strides in our ability to gather information, and can use technology to gain same, do you really think the quality of thinking has gone up since the 19th century? That's a genuine question.
