Check for Plagiarism

This tip is provided by DianeEbersolewith the State Bar of Michigan.

Think someone might be plagiarizing your work? Did you know that you can cut and paste an entire block of text into Google and search the internet to see if your words appear elsewhere? You can also use this trick to check if something someone has presented to you as their own work really is. Just cut the questionable text and paste it into the Google search box. Make sure you put the material in quotation marks and search. If someone has copied something word for word, it won't take long to find them out.
