By oguzergin ·
hello
I really wonder that how come the all sources in microsoft can be protected from the programmers, I mean what it the general security policy against spy programmers what companies do for this cases?

( for ex : I m a coder in MS and how bill gates can be sure I m not takint the piece of code to the out side of MS )

maybe silly but this is reaaly important for my project :))

thnx in advance

I'm sure they have very strict monitoring to prevent this.

When (hypothetically) you write code, you actually have a property interest in that code (a copyright). When you write code for hire (for a company), the company gets the property interest. From a copyright standpoint, the code isn't yours, but rather it belongs to the company that hired you. So even if your photographic memory allowed you to reproduce the code keystroke-for-keystroke, you have now "stolen" the code from its rightful owner.

It would be treated like any other kind of theft (which is what it is).

If you can't accept a no compete agreement, then go into business for yourself.

The thing is when you are doing something wrong - you might be able to get away with it for a long time, maybe, maybe not - but if you are doing wrong - sooner or later it'll **** up in your face. If you know you are doing wrong then maybe you should stop - if that's what you are doing.

I'm sure there's lots of ways to take confidential data out of a place, Even if there is security, not everything is easy to secure.

If you knowingly release something to someone else that doesn't belong to you, then that's a crime.
