Software and Data theft
« on: December 09, 2014, 08:03:53 AM »
Hello,

What kind of data theft? Source code?

It is bit complex. If your employee theft your client's details - then it is an offence. But if he/she theft(taken) source code of the software(assuming the programmer/developer himself/herself did it) - then it's not easy to prove as Data theft as because you haven't any patent or copyright right on the source code developed/programmed by the person.

You have to clarify more details of the case. Simply saying " One of the programmer has copied the data and trying to sale to my competitors. " isn't enough to get proper legal solution.
