IP law in the area of software is up in the air
Before the dotcom boom software inventions were typically patentable.
In recent times, however, it has become increasingly difficult to protect computer implemented inventions, especially abstract ideas that are implemented on a computer (like financial service systems).
To help our clients in the software sector, we provide the following services in collaboration with Glasshouse Advisory, also part of Xenith IP:
- IP strategy advice
- Advice on patentability
- Patent protection (filing and prosecution)
- Patent enforcement and litigation
- Freedom to operate advice
- IP valuation to understand and communicate value to prospective investors
- R&D taxation assistance
- Transfer Pricing advice
