Editors' Review

Plagiarism Checker X analyzes text for plagiarism by searching online for identical phrasing and other indicators of copying. It can also compare texts side-by-side for similarities. A Bulk Search option lets you compare one text to many, many texts to one, or run cross-comparisons.

Pros

Cheaper than lawyers: Plagiarism doesn't have to be your fault to be your liability. At just under $30, Plagiarism Checker X costs about as much as a few minutes of legal counsel.

Reputation: Even if you don't face liability, plagiarism charges can hurt your reputation and your business. Checking for plagiarism protects your all-important reputation.

Summary Report: Tabs display Results and a Summary Report to help you find plagiarized content before it's published.

Cons

Confusing interface: Plagiarism Checker X's user interface isn't overly complex, but it's not terribly efficient, and the sample text doesn't help.

Upgrade now: We had many opportunities to upgrade to a more expensive tool. The setup process asked for our email address to "get started," but it's not required.

Bottom Line

Plagiarism is a very serious legal liability. Website owners, writers, editors, and other content providers need to protect their reputations and businesses from plagiarism charges, however they arise. The best way to do that is to find and remove potentially plagiarized content before you publish or post it. Plagiarism Checker X makes verification easy, and it costs a lot less than most law firms charge to clean up mistakes.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Plagiarism Checker X 4.0.14.
