“Is Software Patentable?”

Software developers often assume that the patent system offers little benefit or protection for their innovations.  But many computer-implemented inventions are eligible for patent protection.  And intellectual property rights can facilitate future research by helping to secure government sponsorship and private investment.  The key is understanding the types of software innovations that are eligible for patenting, the steps that can be taken to increase the likelihood of obtaining patent protection, and the non-patent ways to protect innovative software.
