SAFE Corporation Announces New Plagiarism
Full version is for lawyers, experts,
and researchers; LT version is for authors and other
CUPERTINO, CA (March 24, 2011) - Software Analysis
& Forensic Engineering Corporation, the leading
provider of software tools for detection of software
copyright infringement and trade secret theft, today
announced the release of a new tool for comparing all
kinds of documents to find plagiarism.
"Our unique, patented technology has proved really
useful for finding copied computer code in court, and
I've always wanted to apply the technology to general
documents like articles, papers, and novels," said
Bob Zeidman, president and founder of SAFE Corporation
and developer of the algorithms. "We had a few
cases where we took our matching algorithms and used
them to compare written engineering specifications.
The results were very useful. In one case, finding copied
but modified software specifications gave us the clue
to show how one company copied another's software. So
we spent some time to package the algorithms into software
products targeted specifically for this use."
DocMatch can be licensed as the full version or the
LT version. The full version is the professional tool.
It creates a database containing matching elements between
two sets of documents. The full version can automatically
search the Internet for all references to commonly used
words and filter them from the database. Also, sophisticated
statistics can be extracted from the database. The full
version costs $150 for a one-year license. The LT version
produces an easy-to-read HTML report showing words,
sentences, and paragraphs that are identical or similar
in every pair of documents. The LT version costs $30
for a one-year license. DocMatch can be downloaded from
the SAFE website.
