Intellectual Property Rights in Software

We provide legal advice on the legal protections available for computer software such as copyright, trademark, patent and private contractual protections. These legal protections prevent competitors from copying a company’s products or services, create a corporate identity, negotiate licence agreements, and increase access to new markets.

We give practical advice to our clients in order to allow them to decide on the most effective type of legal protection for their software company. These include;

  • Patents to protect new ideas and inventions
  • Trademarks to protect names in the course of trade
  • Copyright and Design to protect the physical form of literary
  • Joint Venture Agreements
  • Confidentiality Agreements
