Anyone has a Copyscape Premium account? Do you recommend signing up for it?
I'd recommend it if you're into serious copywriting business or purchasing.
1. It gives you 10 times better results
2. It allows you direct text test with 2000 words at one time.. Whereas free copyscape can check only 500 words with a fair result.. For that too, you'd need to paste the content on some site to have the test URL.
3. It has got some new batch features that can alert you for anyone who copies your website content. Some good thing.
In a word "Yes"
In more words, "I couldn't function with out it". Example: I ran an ad a few weeks back looking for review writers and out of those that replied, I hired 17 of them to write a review for me, 200-300 words all on the same item (The Tesla Roadster) out of the 17, 9 failed copyscape... with 4 of them being straight word for word rips.
IMHO, its definitely worth the money.

I absolutely agree that the free service is fine in some cases. I was simply reaffirming what you had posted with an example.

Can you suggest how can anyone without a Credit card sign up for Copyscape Premium?
I think they do not have a policy for taking payments via PayPal..
Please suggest alternatives...
I would like to know who to sign up for Copyscape Premium if I don't have a credit card? Thanks

Well said.. I skipped this one..
But there is a way out. You can create many blogspot blogs and check your content. Blogspot allows you change the url of blog, so there is no issue of same site too... The problem is, it limits the IP sometimes and allows I guess 100 searches per month and then it kicks you.
There are loopholes always and you can enjoy far more than 100 free searches with blogspot.. create, check, change, check.. repeat
