Duplicate pages which is kinda the same thing http://www.copyscape.com/ which is supplied by the same company who do the Google Alert service.

You can read Google's patent on detecting query-specific duplicate documents here, it is quite straightforward http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser?Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=/netahtml/srchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=6,615,209.WKU.&OS=PN/6,615,209&RS=PN/6,615,209
