"Since the dot-com-bust death of FindSame.com a few years ago, I have been looking for a free tool that can help find examples of plagiarism. I recently came across one such tool. It's called Copyscape and works pretty well. Enter the URL of a page of content you wish to track and it will send you a list of webpages that contain most of the content on your page. It uses Google (what else!) to scour the web, but isn't affiliated with Google (it's run by the same folks that created GoogleAlert.com)."
