We started Similar Works to help authors and publishers protect themselves from copyright infringement.
Digital self-publishing has opened up an exciting new world of possibilities for authors. This new world has a dark side, however: it’s now trivial for copycats to plagiarize from existing popular works.
They copy sentences, paragraphs, and in some cases, almost entire books. They move some sections around, change character names… and publish under a new title. Sales revenue generated by your words, your story, goes to someone who doesn’t deserve it.
But how can an author search through millions of titles on multiple digital platforms and even find these acts of plagiarism?
Well, that’s what Similar Works is for.
We understand technology. We also love books — and their authors. That’s why we started Similar Works. We’re here to help you protect your work, so you can focus on what you really love to do: writing and publishing, getting your voice out there.
