This check raises a flag if an exact copy of the creator’s information is found in another submission in the target files. It can be useful in detecting submissions based on another submission.
An example of this situation would be where one student prepares a submission and then circulates it to their classmates. The classmates then modify the original files content, but are basing their work off the original. This is one possible method for detecting an infraction of this nature.

Process Time Options
Like many of the other checks, there are a few options which can be used to fine tune the behaviour of it at process time, as well as can be set in the default options in the Preferences section.
We would like to further develop logic to detect a submissions author ahead of time (this may be pulled from a provided list, directory structure, file naming conventions, etc.) so that we can check the creator’s information against the expected creator for validity.
