Plagiarism and Copyright Help

freelance writingDeb Ng, of Freelancewritinggigs.com, recently introduced me virtally to Jonathan Bailey. He calls himself a ‘geek of all trades’ and considers writing his first love. When he discovered that some six years of writing work was being plagiarized he became somewhat of an expert on the subject.

As a result he created the site Plagiarism Today. The site is devoted to helping others sort out what plagiarism is and isn’t.

He makes it clear that he’s not a lawyer and simply offers the best information he can find to help others.

It’s got all sorts of interesting information, like Don’t Plagiarize Us: Twitter Plagiarism Checking and his popular 1. How to Find Plagiarism. I’m not clear on what the number means in the title, but it’s full of useful resources, including some free ones.

Jonathan is also owns and operates CopyByte. This is a consulting service that works with those who feel they’ve got copyright problem. CopyByte isn’t a law firm – when they say they consult, that’s what they mean.

Good information on both sites and I’m happy to pass them along to you.

  • Awesome links Anne. It’s interesting to see how a turn of events can turn into a business of sorts. Definitely going to check out these sites though, thank you :).

      All sorts of things point to opportunity, that’s for sure.

  • Jonathan’s site is a tremendous resource and I’ve really loved watching it grow over the last few years. A++ site and something everyone in our trade should be reading.

      Thanks for commenting Carson… once again we see eye to eye.

  • He has 6 items in a drop-down menu under Stop Internet Plagiarism. #1 is How to Find Plagiarism.

    Thanks for sharing this, Anne. I have questions from time to time on “gray areas” and it’s good to have a source that isn’t total legalese-speak.
