Pros: It is super easy to use. You just copy / paste an article in to the textbox, hit the button "Premium Search" and it will instantly tell you if your content is original or not.

I have had hundreds of freelance workers producing content for me over the years. More than half of them have tried to submit content with huge sections they blatantly stole from other websites. So having this tool, has saved me a lot of hassle and money.

Cons: It is a bit expensive. Yes, I save money by not paying for plagiarized content, but it runs up when you bulk check content. For a single website or a content writer, this would not be a huge problem, but I seem to have to pull out my credit card way too often :)

I was interested in trying out their CopySentry function as well, but it would be WAY too expensive.

Overall: I have run more than 100k articles through CopyScape over the last 10 years. I have tried to find a replacement, but I always run back to CopyScape. My volume these days is way lower though. But back in the heyday of Google Adsense sites, I ran a LOT of content through.

Easy to use and a great tool for detecting copied work!

I can input the URL of my site or just copy and paste the text and the tool with instantly check if there are any copies of my articles on the web. They also have an API if you want to check automatically. I loved the fact that it is fast and easy to use. It saved me a lot of time.

Cons: You're going to pay per a certain number of words. So, it can be expensive if you want to check a lot of words.

Overall: I do not want others to steal my work and Copyscape is a great tool for checking any copied contents on the web.

Pros: Copyscape is a free plagiarism checker that also offers a premium option. As a whole both free and premium service allows the user to check the originality of content. Although their premium service allows users to enter written content that has not been posted and check for online plagiarism. Another awesome feature is the number of languages Copyscape supports. For example, written content published in French but copied and pasted into Copyscape in English will yield a plagiarized result. Lastly, my favorite feature is how easy Copyscape is to use, simply copy and paste content and results appear within 10 seconds.

Cons: My only complaint would be the price. It can get pricey to do a search. Instead of charging per document It's 3c per search (up to 200 words) plus 1c per extra 100 words.

Overall: If anyone works in freelance writing than using Copyscape is a necessity because clients want originality guarantees and Copyscape provides that.

Very convenient to use. It detects duplicate content accurately!

Pros: A problem I run into all the time is getting a script and not knowing what is different from the previous version. Copyscape has some wonderful comparison tools that will put the documents side by side and highlight what is the same and what is different. This is a huge time saver for me when new scripts come in with no notes about what has been changed

Cons: I would love to not use a web based software for this. I use it frequently enough that I'd love to have a stand alone app without limits, I would pay good money for this.
