Plagiarism will always be a problem and an area of concern.
However, many authors feel that publishing their work on the web for all to see, be it thesis, journal article or conference paper (with appropriate document security), is more likely to be a foil against blatant plagiarism.
These authors believe that if a thesis is lying in relative obscurity in a university library it is more likely to be susceptible to plagiarism.
