The investigator will of course use the database he believes is most appropriate.

For an instructor trying to prevent copying on a particular programming assignment, he will do a pairwise comparison of all programs turned in.

For term papers, many universities use Anti-plagiarism Services [Turnitin.com for example] that have large proprietary databases of term papers.  Students are typically required to turn their papers into the database, which is one way the database grows.

There are commerical Newspaper and Legal databases [Lexus and Nexus] that can be used if you pay for access.

If you suspect that a particular author has copied your work, you can compare just the two items.  At least one Harvard student novelist and a couple of Pulizer Prize winning historians has been caught this way.
