SAFE has just released a new tool for comparing computer code to detect copyright infringement and trade secret theft. CodeCross™ finds traces of nonfunctional source code that have been copied from one program to another.
According to Nikolaus Baer at Zeidman Consulting, a SAFE Corporation customer, “I suggested the concept of CodeCross after working on cases where stolen code had nonfunctional remnants in another party’s code. SAFE developed the tool quickly and it works great. In one case I found traces of copied code that had previously gone undetected.”
CodeCross is available with CodeSuite 3.2.0 and can be downloaded for free from the SAFE Corporation website.
