… dreadful legal market will surely involve suing university researchers who allow their names to be used on articles ghostwritten by pharma.

The law professors would explain that while it’s immoral to allow other people to do your research and your writing for you, and then to take credit for it, it’s illegal to be involved in forms of misrepresentation that harm people. It’s called fraud.
