Google Book Search Fights Plagairism

Slate offered up a column on how Google Book Search can be used to combat plagiarism. Says Paul Collins “Google Book Search contains hundreds of millions of printed pages, and yet after just a few words, the likelihood of the sentence’s replication scales down dramatically.”

In related news, noted jurist Richard Posner of the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals is releasing his hardcover novel, The Little Book of Plagiarism which explores plagiarism and its effects on the economic market. It’s a book I’ll be buying in 2007.
