From online video and audio streaming services to augmented and virtual reality simulators, technology is integral to the modern entertainment industry. Software solutions such as Video Streaming Systems, Content Management Systems (CMS), Point of Sale (POS) Ticketing Software, and Contract Management Software help companies manage their intellectual property and distribute various forms of entertainment. Disputes arising among TV, film, videogame, or live entertainment companies may relate to the intellectual property rights to software and systems, or to the failure of a vendor or contractor to deliver promised functionality for an entertainment system.
DisputeSoft has served as an independent expert and consultant for music publishing companies, video game development companies, and film distribution companies. In a trade secret misappropriation matter involving bingo POS management software, DisputeSoft analyzed database schemas and software reports to assess evidence of copying. DisputeSoft experts also conducted a source code examination of an online video rental recommendation system in connection with a patent infringement matter, and conducted a literal code analysis of two competing mobile games in connection with a copyright infringement and trade secret misappropriation matter.
