My Favorite Plagiarism-Fighting Tools -
When it comes to fighting plagiarism on the Web, one needs to use the right tools to license and defend their work. Tracking content, persuing infringements and shutting down cases requires a great deal of technology and at least some basic knowledge of how the Web works....
