As a teacher who used Moss (for a Measure Of Software Similarity), it was dead on. I taught an introductory course for non-CS majors and when MOSS detected something above 90% similarity, it meant cheating was involved. When I questioned the students, they all confessed. I would say about 20% of the class was caught cheating at one point of time or another.

We don't really understand it, so we'll give it to the programmers.
