SAFE Corporation Is Issued U.S. Patent
on Detecting Plagiarism

CUPERTINO, CA (January 22, 2009) - Software Analysis & Forensic Engineering Corporation, the leading provider of tools for detecting and measuring software intellectual property, has been issued U.S. Patent 7,503,035 for its CodeMatch® tool for detecting software plagiarism, copyright infringement, and certain forms of trade secret theft.

CodeMatch is part of CodeSuite®, which also comprises BitMatch®, CodeCross®, CodeDiff®, 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 intellectual property. BitMatch compares source code to executable binary code to help find possible copying. SourceDetective automatically searches the Internet to determine whether matching code elements in two different programs are unique or commonplace.

CodeMatch was originally created by Bob Zeidman for use in his consulting business. Bob was asked to compare two sets of source code to find copying. The process was long and tedious and though Bob got paid per hour, he decided to automate the process to speed it up. Working in his spare time, Bob created the CodeMatch program. Though some similar programs have been developed at universities, none were very accurate, reliable, or user-friendly. Bob used his own real-world experience and invited the feedback of consultants who have worked for years supporting software IP litigation. When word got out about CodeMatch, Bob started getting overwhelmed with requests for it. In 2008 Bob spun off the program, now incorporated in a suite of analysis and comparison tools called CodeSuite, into a new company called SAFE Corporation. Since day one, SAFE has been profitable and has been growing despite the faltering worldwide economy.

CodeSuite can be downloaded for free from the SAFE Corporation website.
