This book presents the history of one of the key debates in the continuing effort to develop a legal framework for intellectual property rights in the burgeoning computer software industry. It is the first full account of the interoperability debate - the controversy over the protectability of interface specifications and the permissibility of software reverse engineering. But Band and Katoh do much more than recapitulate history. Their analysis gives the reader the necessary background for understanding future debates within the global software industry, including those that will focus on the Information Superhighway. Unique in its international comparative aspects and in the technological and industrial context it provides for the legal issues, Interfaces on Trial is essential reading for scholars of and professionals in the computer software industry, as well as for lawyers specializing in intellectual property, computer law, and international and comparative business law.In sum, reverse engineering source code is like reverse engineering a Lexus off the showroom floor; the programmer, just like the ... Reverse engineering object code can also be compared to the reverse engineering of a Heath-kit radio.
