Servicing the formidable force of US corporate lawyers, American Document Management (“AmDoc”), specialists in the electronic management of business documents, have announced an agreement with Equivio to provide technology for detection of near-duplicate documents.
Now since they said it first, one has to chuckle or perhaps wince a little here. After all, are not most of those US$ 400 per hour cut-and-paste contracts, uh, “near-duplicates”? The answer is more than partially yes. And of course this makes perfect sense.
