CodeCross tool just released for detecting software IP theft and infringement

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.

This is my blog on software intellectual property

Welcome to my blog. I’m the founder and president of SAFE Corporation.

I’ll be posting facts and current events relating to IP litigation, software plagiarism detection (also known as copyright infringement), trade secret theft, and patent infringement. At SAFE Corporation we’re developing unique ground-breaking tools for analyzing, measuring, and comparing software — of course I’ll be updating you on all the cool new tools.
