*Whose* code?

If I were a juror is such a case, I'd want to see (a) a signed "work done for hire" agreement, and (b) any copyright statements in the code. Without the first, the implication is that it's his code, so it wasn't stolen. If there are copyright statements for anyone other than the company, one could legitimately argue that it isn't their code, which would also cast doubt on it being theft.
