Types of Cases We Help

Content Acquisition

Whether you're acquiring a company and its IP, buying a website or acquiring the rights to a book, you need now what you're buying before you make the purchase. We can either warn you of potential issues or give you peace of mind.

Pre-Publication Checks

Have a large project that you're about to publish? Be 100% sure it's free of plagiarism before putting it out into the world. We can help highlight any potential issues giving you a chance to fix them BEFORE they become problems.

Copyright Infringement

If you're building a potential copyright infringement case, we can help. We can perform an analysis of the works involved and determine the likelihood that one is based on the other.

Academic Tribunals

In many cases where schools accuse a student of plagiarism, an outside perspective is needed. We are well versed in working within the academic system and have worked with both students and schools to help bolster their cases.


Sometimes, a plagiarism analysis can be useful when learning about a work or its author. We have worked with historians and other academics to track the origin of various writings and find overlaps with earlier works.

And Much More

One amazing thing about plagiarism analyses is that every case is unique. So if you have a case that you think could benefit from a plagiarism analysis, send us a message below
