    There isn't anything better out there, but if you want to avoid paying for it you can simply upload the text to justpaste.it (or just a text file on your website, blogger, etc) and check it that way.

    For what copyscape costs its a steal, Iv been using it for about a year now and it has never failed me yet. However this one is not too bad:

    Copyscape is fast and accurate.
    I would not use anything else.

    I think it is the best out there. You don't have to pay. just throw the article to a blog and you will be done.

    Wrong. They have some restrictions. If you're editing an article and you're constantly checking the same domain in CopyScape, after a certain numbers of searches they will display the following message : "The maximum number of scans per month has been reached for this site.
    For more, please sign up for a Premium account. More info..."


    However, I've found a way around this. I simply use URL forwarders as the URL I want to check for plagiarism. Normally websites like TinyURL won't do the trick because maybe someone used all the scans per month with them, you should google a not too heavily used URL forwarding website and try with them.

    You can always create a new blog in blogger and check as many times as you want. When the limit reaches, just create a new blog.

    In my case, I use Plagiarism Detector software. It has a demo on their site if you want to try it!
