SourceDetective, Internet Search for Software Plagiarism Released

Software Analysis & Forensic EngineeringCorporation (www.SAFE-corp.biz) has releasedSourceDetective(TM), a tool in its CodeSuite® set of software tools for comparing computer code to detect plagiarism, copyright infringement, and trade secret theft. SourceDetective helps definitively prove or disprove copying of source code by automatically searching the Internet and demonstrating that code elements in two different programs are unique, rarely used, or commonplace…SourceDetective is part of CodeSuite, which comprises CodeMatch®,CodeDiff®, and BitMatch®. CodeMatch compares source code from twodifferent programs and pinpoints areas of suspected copying even when thecopied code has been significantly modified. It has been used in over twodozen copyright infringement and trade secret lawsuits and has become a defacto standard among IP attorneys. CodeDiff finds differences in code fromprograms that are nearly identical and has been used to measure changes insoftware intellectual property between versions of software programs.BitMatch is used to compare source code to executable binary code, lookingfor signs of copying. It can help determine whether a competitor hasmisappropriated your code and whether litigation is necessary or useful.

According to Bob Zeidman, President of SAFE Corporation, “SourceDetectivewill be very important for copyright infringement and trade secretlitigation. Previously, searches were done manually and were extremely timeconsuming. Not only has SourceDetective sped up this process thousands oftimes over, but it is exhaustive and generates data in a form that iseasily readable and presentable to a judge or jury.”

A fully functional copy of SourceDetective is available with CodeSuite3.0.0 and can be downloaded from the SAFE Corporation website. Licenses forrunning SourceDetective are available from SAFE Corporation.
