When copying has occurred, much of the code may have changed by the time it’s examined due to the normal development process or to disguise the copying. For example identifiers may have been renamed, code reordered, instructions replaced with similar instructions, and so forth.

Correlation is designed to produce a relatively high value based on that comment or… [read post]

Though many of you might have seen this article last week when it hit the front page of Digg, I wanted to share it with the readers here.

Recently I was driving around between appointments and flipping through radio stations on Sirius XM. I came across a song that at first I thought was the summer hit by Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams - Blurred Lines. But that wasn't the song at all, rather is was Marvin Gaye's Got to Give it Up. I knew it would only be time before reading about some kind of settlement between Marvin Gaye's family and Thicke/Williams, but Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams suing the family of Marvin Gaye asserting… [read post]
