TurnItIn and Plagiarism

Interesting article on Turnitin.com, a Web site professors and universities use to (hopefully) catch students passing off plagiarized work. Unfortunately the service has a variety of issues, the biggest of which is that it offers a (paid) service for students that tells them the parts of their papers that will get flagged should it get run through turnitin.com by their professor.
