Software Forensics: Detecting Software Intellectual Property Theft

Software copyright infringement is a problem of growing concern. Intellectual property theft may be purposeful to gain an unfair advantage over a competitor, or it may be unintended as when a programmer takes code from one project and uses it in another project without first obtaining the appropriate rights. In all cases, a standard measure and standard methodology is needed to be able to effectively compare source code from different programs to determine whether theft or infringement occurred. This talk will examine the algorithms of software code correlation and how it is used to find legitimate and illegitimate copying.
