For leading companies around the world, third party software including open source, and reuse of internal code, has become much more than a cost-cutting measure; it has become a necessary ingredient for accelerating innovation that is exploited in any software project. Along with the growing pervasiveness of ready-to-utilize code, rises the critical need for managing the intellectual property (IP) obligations associated with it. Failure to comply with licensing requirements carries a high price, and can result in lawsuits, oblige companies to reveal their source code, and cost them valuable transactions.

Protecode Library Auditor (LA) is part of Protecode System 4 solution, using the analysis and management capabilities of Protecode Enterprise Server (ES). The LA and ES can run on the same platform, and multiple LAs can use the services of the same ES. Protecode Library IP AuditorTM ensures that all files committed to a code repository are compliant with an organization’s intellectual property (IP) policy. Separate IP policies can be established for specific branches of the repository. This tool is a component of the end-to-end software IP management process within an organization. Protecode’s Software Lifecycle IP Management solutions are developed within a unified architecture which allows scalability, flexible updates and affordability for organizations of all sizes.

  • + Functional details

    Working closely with IBM's ClearCase solution Protecode Library IP Auditor is notified whenever new files are committed to a pre-defined portion of the repository. Once notified, it automatically performs an IP analysis by querying the Protecode IP Signatures database to determine the code pedigree and its associated licensing and copyright obligations. Violations against the established IP policy are then reported by sending an email to a defined administrator.

    Protecode Library IP Auditor is operating system independent and uses Perl configuration to integrate with SVN, Perforce, or Rational ClearCase code repositories. Support for other repositories can be provided on demand.
