Strict Anti-Plagiarism Laws to Fuel the Market

Stringent implementation of anti-plagiarism regulations in developed countries is expected to accelerate the expansion of this market during the forecast period. Plagiarism is considered a criminal as well as a civil offense in some countries, depending on the nature of infringement by the perpetrator. For example, in the UK, if plagiarism violates the country’s copyright laws, the accused person is seen as a criminal offender. Further, if the person engages in commercial dealings of the plagiarized material, the offender can serve up to 10 years in jail. Similar laws exist in Australia and the United States to deter people from utilizing plagiarized content for commercial gain. In 2018, the Government of India also established the country’s first laws regulating academic plagiarism, which were accepted by the University Grants Commission. According to the new law, 10% plagiarism is acceptable, but anything beyond that will be met with strict punishments. These laws are likely to stoke the adoption of anti-plagiarism software among academic professionals, students, and the publishing industry to avoid penalties and lawsuits.
