5 Best Free Copyscape Alternatives to Catch content thieves

Copyscape Alternatives

Plagiarism is a punitive offence of purloining a piece of work initially created by someone else and presenting it as one’s own original creation. It can be with respect to any form of art. Be it music, lyrics, books, cinema or site content. Copyscape is an online plagiarism detecting device which is used by content owners to look for content theft.Content owners can submit the site name to Copyscape and it will provide the owner with a list of web pages that consist of similar contents. Although Copyscape relieves a site owner from owning a plagiarized site, it limits a user to use the free trial of Copyscape for only once a month. If one wishes to use it further, one has to sign up with a Premium Account, paying 5 cents per search. This gives rise to the need of free alternatives to Copyscape to achieve immunity against plagiarism for free. Thus Tech Entice presents you with 5 best free alternatives to Copyscape as follows :


1. Plagium: Tech Entice believes Plagium to be the best alternatives to Copyscape. HANDS DOWN!!!

    Great article. I’m glad there are alternatives to Copyscape.

    As a blog/article writer I’m sure you’re aware of scammers that post requests for freelance writers to make paid articles, but then they don’t pay them. They use Copyscape to make the excuse that a writer has plagiarized. And of course, since there’s a chance the original writer doesn’t want to sign up for Copyscape’s premium account, he/she won’t try to check their accusations (assuming the writer’s free trial expired already).

    Happened to me once. I checked my article (a top 5 list about tech stuff) on, and the #1 hit was an article about fossil fuels or something.. and the biggest plagiarism that I committed was the following: “..always, if you have.. or just want to.. ‘re doing a good job.” Reported that shizzle scammer.

    Lol :3

    these are all fairly poor alternatives to copyscape tbh, copyscape can crawl your whole site and tell you if it’s been plagiarised at all
