IP protection for software

Software development is inherently creative as reflected by the variety of software-specific IP opportunities and threats. The different business models, from Open Source to Closed Source, and competitors ranging from this week’s start-up to established titans, affects greatly what is best for you.

How we can help

Software patents, copyright, copyleft, database rights, patent trolls, GUI and icon design rights, computer-implemented business methods, FRAND and Standard Essential Patents... you name it, we’ve dealt with it.

Over the years we have worked for the largest multinational software companies, SMEs, universities and start-ups to implement and deliver sensible IP strategies which are specific to their business.

Technologies we work with include fintech, cybersecurity, AI, telecoms, CODECs, apps, bioinformatics, Computer Assisted Surgery and cryptography, and we have extensive, leading-edge experience of blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies.
