IP and Patent series: Intellectual Property in Software


Myth: Software inventions cannot be patented.

Reality: There are complex rules over what and how software inventions can be patented but broadly software is patentable if it solves a “technical” problem.

We will discuss the rules around the patenting of computer-implemented inventions at the European Patent Office, how to identify inventions that might be patentable, and how to go about presenting those inventions to get the best chances of success at the EPO. We will illustrate these complex rules using a visual illustration and a number of worked examples to try and bring some clarity to an often misunderstood subject.
