    I tried to check if the content of this website is used anywhere. Copyscape gave me error

    Error: Invalid protocol "" - please ensure you entered the URL correctly

    Is there anyway that I can check if content from a web from archive is being copied?

    Yes, you can copy/paste that content into field for checking inside of CS? Or you can just copy paste that content somewhere at yourownurl.com/samplecontent.html and test it.

    Most probably reason why it's not working as you are pasting it like this:
    https://web-beta.archive.org/web/*/http://google.com

    So, basically it can't be checked as they will detect https and as well http as URL's and I can assure you that coder who coded that didn't expect two http/https params in URL as it's not used that often. So that might be the problem with copyscape.

    Or they've simply banned content from archive.org being checked. IDK

    I don't have CS premium. Is there any other alternative for me?

    Put an entire paragraph into Google and you are good to go. Not as reliable, because some other paragraph may be duplicate, but as a cheap alternative it's perfeclty fine.
