Our aim is to prevent copyright infringements and the unauthorised use of another’s intellectual property.

We cooperate with universities, government bodies and publishing houses. We also support private individuals hoping to prevent their intellectual property from plagiarism.
Plagiat.pl (of which StrikePlagiarism.com is the international brand name) was established in June 2002. The company aimed to support academic teachers, struggling with the plague of plagiarism at universities. In response to the common problem of using the “copy- paste” method by students in their theses and dissertations an Internet Antiplagiarism System Plagiat.pl is created. In the first year of its existence it was widely accessible for free. The popularity of the System among academic staff and teachers showed the importance of this type of enterprise in academic spheres and the need for its further development.
In May 2005 Dr Sebastian Kawczyński, the spiritus movens of the undertaking, who has been responsible for the development of the System since 2003, was nominated President of the Board. Thanks to his commitment the System has gained national status and the problem of plagiarism has been put on agenda in academic circles. Responding to the needs of educators, publishers and media distributors, the company developed a range of products, consisting of both software and consulting.
The company participates in nationwide projects and cooperates with local authorities. In 2012, as the effect of the European Union funded project, Academic System for Archiving Papers was offered to Polish universities. In 2014-2015 Plagiat.pl participated in development of the national PhD dissertations repository in Romania.
As of 2016, Plagiat.pl provides a wide spectrum of services and cooperates not only with universities, but also with high schools, publishing houses, website owners and individual clients. It is the leader of the markets of Poland and Romania, and, with the StrikePlagiarism.com brand, is active in Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Ukraine, Moldova, Germany and Colombia.
In many countries, the company engages with the academic community in discussion about the modern day challenges for Higher Education Institutions and the role of plagiarism prevention in protecting the quality of education. Each year the company holds conferences in Warsaw, and participates in many events abroad. We’re looking forward to meeting you at our next event!
