Open Source Code Detection For Cut and Paste Carelessness

Open source development shops looking to tighten up license and copyright compliance in commercial deployment environments now have a new free source code scanner option in the form of JNinka from White Source.

Based on the Ninka algorithm and offered under the AGPL license, JNinka exists as a means of tracking open source components throughout software development lifecycles that may harbor open source code hidden within a team’s own proprietary code.
