Detecting plagiarism and content theft is a relatively simple process for most types of content. Just plug your work into a few search engines and, odds are, you’ll come up with a list of people ripping off your hard work.
But detecting plagiarism does little good if there is no way to stop it. However, stopping plagiarism is a very different matter. Getting someone to stop using your work requires you to be a negotiator, a detective and a jurist.
Fortunately, if you know what to do and where to look for help, the process of stopping plagiarism can be relatively easy and painless. I, myself, rarely spend more than fifteen minutes on a case of plagiarism. With the proper tools in place, there is little reason anyone else should spend more time.
