IP Rights in Software

Software and Intellectual Property

This section looks at IP rights in software and explains how different types of IP protect software. There is no singular IP right that protects software as a whole. Instead, it is better viewed as a bundle of rights. Indeed, not all rights subsisting within a piece of software will necessarily be the same, nor will they necessarily all belong to the same party. Copyright is particularly important, but trade marks, design rights, and patents can also be relevant.
