Barence (1228440) writes "It's not exactly a revelation to learn that a huge number of students boost their grades by getting essays from the internet. Resources such as so-called internet “essay mills”, Wikipedia and Google’s all-seeing eye have taken plagiarism to a new level, and it will get worse as a generation of students who have been taught to use the internet since primary school are about to reach university. Universities are fighting back with plagiarism-detection software of their own, and this feature investigates which side is best equipped to win the arms race."
