IT Group partner provides support to mediation regarding IP dispute of a software as a service (SAAS) web application

IT Group’s IP expert forensically analysed two separate software source code repositories in order to present findings in a London-based mediation.

The dispute arose when one party alleged that object code in its application had been decompiled and reused by a competitor in their software.

The code in question featured in two “software as a service” web applications.

IT Group’s consultant, an experienced Expert Witness in IP disputes, focused efforts on looking for forensic similarities, publically available (or open source) code routines and the restrictions laid down by syntax and best practice.
