Plagiarisim Today's review of CopyrightSpot

Jonathan Bailey from PlagiarismToday recently wrote a review of CopyrightSpot. Jonathan is an expert when it comes to methods and tools to protect your original content online and he is always insightful and thorough with his reviews. As he stated in his review:
I put the service (CopyrightSpot) to the test to see how well it performs against Google and some of its competitors. The results were surprising.
Even thou CopyrightSpot is still in alpha and has more work to do to create one of the top online content protection tools, Jonathan didn't cut it any slack during his testing. This is what he said:
Since CopyrightSpot is in an alpha release, I feel the need to go very easy on it. However, since many have already started relying upon it as their primary copy detection tool, I did want to put it through a few tests to see how it stacked up against both Copyscape and Google itself.
We're glad he didn't take it easy on testing CopyrightSpot and his review has provided a great resource for us to use to help shape CopyrightSpot. We've already begun to incorporate some of his suggestions. We'll make an announcement here when they're ready to use.

It's exciting that a solid base for plagiarism detection has been built into CopyrightSpot and attention can now be used to tweak and enhance the detection algorithm, along with building out more tools to help bloggers, authors and poets with protecting and managing their online original content.
