Honour Codes in the Classroom

This morning I started the Learn to Program: The Fundamentals course at coursera.org and had to agree to the following Honour Code:
In order to ensure fairness, all students participating in any of our online classes must agree to abide by the following code of conduct:
  • I will register for only one account.
  • My answers to homework, quizzes and exams will be my own work (except for assignments that explicitly permit collaboration).
  • I will not make solutions to homework, quizzes or exams available to anyone else. This includes both solutions written by me, as well as any official solutions provided by the course staff.
  • I will not engage in any other activities that will dishonestly improve my results or dishonestly improve/hurt the results of others.
I've seen netiquette agreements and digital citizenship agreements before, but never something like this! I personally think it's a great idea.

Is anyone using something similar to this in their classroom. Care to share?
