Source Code Review

What is source code review?

Source Code Review helps identify crucial evidence of infringement from within the defendant's source code before and during fact discovery. Source code evidence can arguably be the most powerful weapon in a litigator's toolkit, requiring not only specialized tools but also unique expertise.

Hosting and conducting a source code review can be expensive in terms of time, cost and security. Attorneys necessarily have to manage a balancing act to ensure not only that the producing party's source code remains secure but also that the source code review is done diligently and efficiently. 

Copperpod's source code experts navigate through the source code quickly to identify:

  • Implementation of the patented technology with detailed excerpts

  • Missing source code

  • Missing documentation referenced in the source code

  • Most appropriate witnesses for testifying on source code

  • Relevant development and release dates

  • Source code from third parties

  • Source Code governed by open-source licenses
