How To protect your Content from plagiarism.

, posted: 21-Feb-2007 17:55

Plagiarism, its a fairly hot topic at the moment.

so how do you protect yourself from it?

there is a great site called Copyscape, they offer an initial free service which returns a limited amount of results,

however for a small fee of 0.05c USD per search you can even access an api that will automatically report to you.

minimum purchase is 100 searches, or $5.00USD but I think its well worth it. I just bought 100 searches with the use of my trusty "prezzy card" and I don't regret it.

plus there is a number of options for cool banners such as this one:

its a very handy and neat little webpage - powered by google alerts api apparently, however its still very handy to find out if your content is being stolen.

Copyscape also have a handy guide on what to do if you find you are a victim of plagiarism

thats located HERE

I'll get to that shortly, there are a large number of resources on the internet that discuss various things that you can do, I'm just compiling a list of links,

I have developed a plagiarism detection tool called DOC Cop ( that may be of interest. DOC Cop does NOT take ownership or copyright of your material and does not retain your material beyond the time it takes to generate your report. DOC Cop scans a document of up to 500 words against the web in minutes. DOC Cop also scans Word documents very quickly - one million words, a thousand thousand-word documents or Homer's Odyssey against Joyce's Ulysses within 20 minutes.

I'm a professional Geek, and also in my own time, I am likely to write about all manner of things on this blog.
Of late I haven't updated this place much, but I need to do some revamping and dust off the cobwebs a bit. so thats what I'll do. going to aim for a minimum of three times a week updated here to begin, then perhaps head towards every day!

Who knows! 

but for now I hope you enjoy what you read, and that I aid the constant novelty and stimulus to your brain that the internet provides us all, in a way nothing else can!

I am likely to comment on everything here, but my current topics of choice are

*Mobile Devices
*general and specific ramblings
*Dvorak Keyboard

Mobile devices and more
