What is Software Copyright Registration?

Modern society relies heavily on computer technology.  Without software, a computer cannot operate.  Software and hardware work in tandem in today’s information society.  So it is no wonder that intellectual property protection of software is crucial not only for the software industry but for other businesses as well.

The intellectual property protection of computer software has been highly debated at the national and international level.  For example, in the European Union (EU), a draft Directive on the Patentability of Computer-implemented Inventions has been discussed in order to harmonize the interpretation of the national patentability requirements for computer software-related inventions, including the business methods carried out via the computer.  These discussions show divergent views among stakeholders in Europe.  Furthermore, the Internet raises complex issues regarding the enforcement of patents, as patent protection is provided on a country-by-country basis, and the patent law of each country only takes effect within its own borders.
