Software Patents and Infringement Detection

Lecture date: Wednesday, 04 April @7PM

In this lecture, Mr. Zeidman will explain how copyright laws protect your software, why you need this protection, and how to utilize it to your advantage. After an overview of software source code and software object code, Zeidman will then describe software correlation, a technique for detecting copied code. The presentation will conclude with interesting tales from actual court cases.

This event is open to the public, totally free to attend, and is part of a Lecture Series sponsored by the Entrepreneurship Program at Cogswell.
