Clean Room Setup for Alleged Source Code Infringement

Intellectual property litigation often requires experts to review source code to evaluate the probability of copying or infringement. Our client, a law firm representing a patent plaintiff, required a means of doing such an analysis defensibly and securely. Celerity set up a simple, yet defensible “clean room” environment with an industry-standard third-party software to both guide the review and prevent spoiliation. With our verification protocols in place, our client’s expert could analyze the code in a secure environment with a clear audit trail for defensibility.
