Software Protection

Because of her software background Attorney James, understands the different processes involved in software development. Our firm advises on IP rights as it relates to software including patents, trade secrets, copyrights, and trademarks. The software product is fully evaluated and the appropriate level of protection is selected. Copyrights protect software code from being copied. Patents protect the functionality of the software. Trade secrets can protect property software and strategic IP protection of software; both the expression and the physical embodiment. Trademarks protect the product name or logo in which the company markets its software products. The firm also reviews all aspects of software development agreements including but not limited to:

  • licensing
  • custom software development agreements
  • dealing with defective software
  • UCC issues
