Unique Content verifier, also called UN.CO.VER, is an application for Windows, Mac and Linux based operating systems that verifies the specified content from the internet and displays a result of websites that have copied it. Just copy and paste the text from an article to see what websites have the matching text. This can be used by not just authors to check if someone has copied their article but also by teachers who might be interested in verifying student assignments. UN.CO.VER can be used not just to for general verification over the internet but also with a single URL and an entire website (inclusive of primary and sub-domains).
To get started, either copy & paste the content from an article or manually type it and click Check Now. This will display the websites that contain matching content. It must be noted however, that if the content match is as negligible as 15-30 percent, then it might be a case of mere coincidence. On the contrary if the content is displayed as 50% or more as copied, then it is easily verifiable if someone as copied content from a certain source. During testing I found it quite interesting that no matter what term I entered, Wikipedia seemed to be the result of the duplicate content. This obviously because it is an enormous resource filled with zillions of text pages and some extent of content (e.g. 2 %) is likely to match any of its articles.
Domains can also be checked by entering the Domain name, text (optional) and clicking on the Check Now button. Web projects can also be loaded (via the Check Websites tab) and verified for plagiarism. Any link that contains a copy of the same content can be opened by double clicking on it (from the result).
With UN.CO.VER the days of ripping information off other websites (at least for students) can soon be over. It works with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.
