Install a plagiarism detection program

This petition had 1,103 supporters

Wattpad is a site that allows users from all around the world to post their stories for free. This is wonderful, as it gives people from all over the opportunities to meet one another and read each other's works. However, the security on the site is not strong enough. The site has an influx of thousands and thousands of users daily. Since it is such a large database, they should take more measures for the security of their site. There are too many thieves on Wattpad, stealing stories, and claiming that these stories belong to them. When a writer puts their work on the Internet, it automatically becomes a copyrighted work. Plagiarism is highly illegal because it is infringing on an author's artistic right, whether it be an already published, famous author, or a regular user on Wattpad. This issue can be fixed by Wattpad simply installing a plagiarism detection program so that they can regulate what gets published with far more ease. It would also help authors feel more secure about what they post on the site. I hope you support this petition. Please sign below if you think this change is needed.
