How we measure 'reads'

I am not a researcher. I work in the private industry. However, early in 2013 I learned that the short thesis that I wrote back in 1998 to earn my BS in CS was plagiarized during Y2K by a graduate student from another university. After researching I found out that my university, his university and no university in Mexico knows how to deal with similar situations. I wrote a paper with an inter-university proposal on how to deal with plagiarism after the fact. My paper is currently under review.
