Software Cat and Mouse

IP, Ownership, and Cyber Piracy Today

So you’ve built yourself some lovely software. You’ve shined and polished the corners, field tested it, and even gotten the approval of the VCs on high. But what if, the whole time, there was a tiny hole in your code? And because of that tiny hole, the bad guys were able to waltz right in and are now using your software all willy-nilly-like without paying. Well folks, this is happening a lot more than we know.
