Linking anti-plagiarism detection, timestamping into one unified solution monetizes the content, accordingly. Further, academics can eliminate academic misconduct. It establishes a priority of findings. Additionally, creatives like photographers, artists, designers can use SharpShark to prove authorship. They can also effectively track their creations in one consolidated space.
