What we do

Anti-Piracy       advance preparation

 
Enterprises releasing and selling software in China for the first time always suffer great economic loss because of the lack of awareness of software intellectual property protection in China. We have concluded experiences about piracy striking for various customers, based on which, we can provide professional market research and legal suggestions to enterprises releasing and selling software in China for the first time. Therefore, we can help our customers prepare for piracy before it happens, and effectively reduce loss for it.
 
 
Anti-Piracy           after action
 
Access control and encryption method in technology cannot avoid piracy fundamentally, while the management method of user key and password will always be cracked. In addition, the software may be resold after modification and re-encryption without source code. Software enterprises can only maintain their own rights by striking afterwards before taking stronger technological measures for performance loss of development cost and encryption techniques. We will provide composite plan with administrative penalty, criminal judgment, and civil compensation to customers to help them strike piracy in China effectively.
 
Registration of software copyright        
 
 Measures for software copyright protection are quite different in different countries. Software manufacturers completing development and preparing for release in China shall determine if it is necessary to register software copyright in China according to specific conditions.
 
No matter software manufacturers are from the nation that copyright protection will be obtained after finishing, or performing legal registration procedure, we will provide suggestions according to specific development conditions, confidentiality measures, and market competition conditions.
 
Risk control of non-product software development
 
Non-product software development aims at individual customers because the software demand of customer can finally realized by communication and cooperation with customer representative, architect, development department, test department, and even the outsourcing company. 
 
 
Protection of software source code
 
Many enterprises control data transmission and access with uniform platform during the development. For developed source code, NSE, INNOVASAFE, and other institutes also provide service of source code custodian. Anyway, the reveal of source code is quite possible because of development debugging, program update, etc., while programmer job-hop and decompilation and crack tools also threat to the safety of source code. We have undertook various copyright disputes caused by source code copy, so our experience can help customers effectively protect source code.
 
 
Compliance of software company
 
We will provide comprehensive compliance management, including labor contract management of Chinese programmer, privacy policy of software products and Chinese individuals, protection for customer rights, open source agreement in software development, software licensing, SAAS agreement, and software channel agreements to companies in Chinese market. We help non-native software companies newly entering into China, avoid various risks with our experience of legal service.
