The actual information on the licence difference is available from our site:

1. It would be most wise to not publish your activation code for everyone to see.

2. When you need to have your license re-initialized, please send e-mail to our support ( -a- ).

I hope it helps.

Hi Alexei, how reliable is this feature? I always fear these things might miss stuff and get you in trouble.
When it is of vital importance, I'd always recommend you to check yourself first, before submitting any paper.

The known problem with this feature that exists in some cases, is when Plagiarised and Referenced sections heavily overlap and are merged into one section. The resulting section may be shown as Plagiarism, even if a part of it is Referenced. However this is not likely to happen for "clean" documents, is it?

The merging algorithm is planned for upgrading in one  of the future versions.

- Changed the initial source extraction algorithm. The new algorithm ensures possible sources are found, as the old one has siezed to function.
- Due to the framework changed, new versions give a different computer ID. This meanslicenses are to be re-initialized, if updating from an old version.

- Multiple fixes in localizations.
- Multiple fixes regading compatibility with both old and new version of Windows.
- Updated compatibility with secure resources to prevent failing of resources using new versions of TLS.
- Other changes.

Again Norton detects latest version as "WS.Reputation.1".
Submitted false-positive report to them. should be working fine in a few days.

Plagiarism Detector licenses are not limited in time.
You may always contact our support service for a license re-initialization (new OS/PC, etc.)

PDAS licenses are monthly subscriptions for individual clients.


Please, be more exact about your problem.

- Important: Fixed a problem, when clustering distance was the same for both presets (Arts&Sciences). Results from this version and on will be different from previous versions ad are to be more exact. Any feedback is appreciated.

- New long-awaited feature added for testing purposes: saving reports to PDF ! It will be in testing for some time and we hope it will be then added on a regular basis. Reports are uploaded to our servers for conversion and you then download the result.

Mostly ARV changes:
- Added button to save the list of reports to CSV
- Added button to save the report to HTML file to a desired location
- Re-worked reports so that a notification is seen, when an incorrectly re-saved report is opened.
- Slightly changed coloring for reports with lots of failed resources (planning to divide fails due to a client computer from those generated by servers)
- New graph in reports, mouseover highlights top source for a selected section.
- Added a new panel below and changed elements distribution. More elements to come.

"Silver Bullets" / Re: Resources Error Codes

New information added to the report for failed resources:
1. Browser error message now displayed.
Resource Download Failed. Means that the resource was not downloaded and thus was not analyzed.

Get Response Failed. Means the resource was not downloaded because the site had not provided the response to the request.

Another recommendation would be to unlock the ability for a customer to use the previous version of the software

This would have been done, if it were possible. It was not our wish to force updating to the latest version, but the need. Due to some third party changes, versions 850 and bellow started providing totally inadequate results (very poor detection), thus we were to force-update our clients.

T-comparator presets are not so easily changed. Presets currently used are based on the algorithms developed for PAN'14 conference, plagiarism detection task, and showed one of the best results with the used document corpus. One of the lines of our research now is what is different between that corpus and the "real-life" cases, which can be closely connected to the problem you report.

Changing the preset in the current system requires some research, as we need to be sure the new preset works better. At present we have started additional tests on the false-positive detection and upon the results we will both post here and may start making the needed alterations.

Like you were informed, we will consider the detection threshold for the Arts. However as of now we don't see enough reason to change it - this preset is aimed at detecting obfuscated plagiarism and our tests showed it deals with this problem just fine.

We need enough evidence of false-positives with this preset to change it. We are ready to analyze each such case and we have some of them stored already. But the number of such cases is not yet enough to start such changes.

We recommend to use word-to-word preset when it is necessary to avoid false-positives.

Thank you for your interest in our software!

Lite is the most basic license. We are now reviewing differences between Lite and Personal licenses, so these will be different in the next version.

Pro - this license gives access to all features, and besides provides licenses for two computers.

Portable - this gives additional license to be used from your USB/Flash drive.

All the prices are available from our site:

Feel free to ask any additional questions.
