2. Intellectual property rights issue in Offshore
and intellectual property rights issues are discussed
many times at many places.
- What if source code developed for me is also sold
to my competitors ?
- What if service provider makes minor changes in
code of the product developed for me and put his own
product in the market?
- What if any employee of service provider steal code
and sell to my competitors?
Intellectual property is like genie. If stolen, it
can not be put back in bottle. We sign intellectual
property rights agreement with our client. At the end
of project, when client informs, we delete every piece
of code from our computers. We do not offer so called
"REUSABLE LIBRARIES" like many other offshore
We make legal agreements with our employees to protect
client source code. Limited internet access, Email scanning,
disabled floppy drives and cd-writers etc. are the other
measures we take.
