Question: Can I Patent a Computer Software Program?
Computer related intellectual property such as a computer software program can be patented. To determine whether your software can be patented, the general test is whether the end result has a ‘commercially useful effect’.
This is additional to the requirement that the software must be an end result of a mode or manner that is artificially created.
Seek professional advice on whether your software is patentable.
