Patentability of Software & AI Advice

How can you protect your valuable software development? Patents can provide strong protection, broader than copyright as they go beyond stopping direct copying and are effective against reverse engineering.  They are also potential assets, valuable if seeking investment or on exit and may qualify you for tax relief.

However, for software and AI getting a patent is not as straightforward as for other technologies. Sometimes it is better to try to keep things as a trade secret.  Strategic advice untainted by a presumption you will file an application is offered.

Disclaimer:
All of our searching and advice is based on databases that have limitations and is conducted within a budget. Our advice is based on our reasonable and pragmatic judgement as to what may be worth pursuing and what may face a serious obstacle. IP offices, particularly non-native English-speaking ones, may however form a different view of relevance. Owners of other marks may take an aggressive stance towards defending broad space around their own marks. We give no guarantee that a mark will go straight through to registration or that it will not be opposed. If we recommend a particular course of action either to pursue or not to pursue a mark, based on what we understand of your situation, it does not follow that the alternative course is impossible.
