This paper explains how collaborative efforts in terms of technology and content, can help improve plagiarism detection and prevention. It presents a web service oriented architecture, which utilizes the collective strength of various search engines, context matching algorithms and indexing contributed by users. The proposed framework is an open source tool, yet it is extremely efficient and effective in identifying plagiarism instances. By creatively using distributed processing capabilities of web services, this tool offers a comprehensive mechanism to identify pirated contents. With an aim to extend current plagiarism detection facilities, the proposed framework not only tries to reduce known deficiencies but also aims to provide plagiarism protection mechanism.
