Software Protection

Companies invest significant time and resources to develop software. So, it is only natural that you will want to protect it from IP theft. To begin, software is protected under copyright law as a literary work and gives a rights holder “prima facie” evidence that he/she was the first to create a work, is the owner and prevents 3rd parties from unauthorised copying, use and distribution of your software source code, including portions of it.

Software is unique in that it cannot work without being copied. This is why it is important to not only copyright your software but to also make sure you have proper licenses in place when you sale or distribute your software. This gives you complete control of your source code’s ownership rights.

Depending on the jurisdiction, software may also be eligible for protection under patent law.
