Mission

Intellectual property law encompasses the “big four” of patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets.  Each of these takes special twists and turns when applied to software.  This blog covers those twists and turns, the places where software intersects the law of intellectual property.  Issues ranging from the patentability of software to how to hire programmers, from protecting software copyright to firing programmers, from setting up a website to licensing an operating system, and more, all live here.
