SAFE Corporation Releases CodeCross for Detecting Software IP Theft

Software Analysis & Forensic Engineering Corporation (www.SAFE-corp.biz) has just released a new tool for comparing computer code to detect copyright infringement and trade secret theft. CodeCross™ finds traces of non-functional source code that have been copied from one program to another…CodeCross is part of CodeSuite®, which also comprises BitMatch®, CodeDiff®, CodeMatch®, and SourceDetective™. CodeMatch compares source code from two programs and pinpoints areas of suspected copying. CodeDiff finds differences in source code from programs that are nearly identical and has been used to measure changes in software IP. BitMatch is used to compare source code to executable binary code; it can help determine whether a competitor has misappropriated your code and whether to start litigation. SourceDetective™ helps definitively prove or disprove source code copying by automatically searching the Internet and demonstrating that code elements in two different programs are unique, rarely used, or commonplace. CodeSuite has been used in over two dozen software lawsuits and has become a de facto standard among IP attorneys.

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 non-functional 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.
