n Without Prejudice - Landmark ruling brings new clarity to software patents : intellectual property

USD

 

Abstract

The grey area that has defined software patents in South Africa and Europe has received a newfound lease on life as a result of a landmark appeal decision by the UK Patent Court [ Case No. CH/2007/APP/0466]. In effect, the UK Intellectual Property Office (UKIPO) may no longer automatically ban patents or patent applications directed to computer programmes as such.
