2: Understanding Software Intellectual Property (4.25
California MCLE Credit Hours)
provides MCLE training through Zeidman Consulting, approved
MCLE Provider #14630.
Abstract: Software copyright infringement and trade
secret theft are problems of growing concern in industry.
These kinds of intellectual property theft may be purposeful
when performed to gain an unfair advantage over a competitor,
or they may be unintended as in the case of a programmer
that takes code from one project and uses it in another
project without first obtaining the appropriate rights.
In all cases, a formal methodology is required and a
standard, quantitative measure is needed to be able
to effectively compare source code from different sources
to determine whether trade secret theft or copyright
infringement has occurred. Just as important, legal
and technical definitions are needed. This seminar will
define important terms from a technical perspective
and a legal perspective so that litigation involving
software intellectual property is less a battle of experts
and more a quantitative comparison of repeatable results.
The seminar will examine various measures of software
correlation and various tools for detecting IP infringement.
