Windows 7: Turnitin (anti-plagiarism software) problematic

Turnitin (anti-plagiarism software) problematic

One of my university instructors forwarded the link below to the students and staff - it contains very interesting information on the flaws of Turnitin, a popular anti-plagiarism software. Students' papers are run through this software to detect and prevent plagiarism...but unfortunately, it is not that simple.

All my essay's are put throught Turnitin, it never occured to me how limited it might be though. I wonder how many of our lecturers actually 'properly' check for plagurism though, in this day of technology doing so much.
