Copyscape’s plagiarism checker is straightforward to use. The free tool can report the uniqueness of a website’s content from its URL, while premium users can check the originality of their text by pasting it on the text box or uploading their files.
Copyscape also offers a free comparison tool to check between two specific websites or texts, which can be found under the “Products” menu.
Moreover, Copyscape Premium has a batch search feature which makes it easier to check multiple files at once for plagiarism.
It provides a useful costing estimate for users to check the plagiarism of their content. The costing will be sent to your email within 24 hours.
Text Similarity Detection
Like other plagiarism checkers, Copyscape lists online sources that are similar to your content. However, it does not highlight outright which parts of the text are similar, and you have to click on the links to check. It also doesn’t report
how much of the content is not unique in terms of percentages, which is quite a basic feature in competitors.
Multiple File Format Support
Copyscape supports uploading files in PDF, DOC, DOCX, RTF, and TXT, compared to most software that can only check for plagiarism from pasted text.
