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.

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
