Use Copyright Law to Protect Your Software (Part 3: The Challenge of Demonstrating Protectability)
Protecting your company's software (often its most valuable asset) from competitors requires planning prior to the existence of a dispute. Here, Mark Moore (Partner, Reavis Page Jump LLP) zeros in on one of the challenges inherent in relying on the U.S. Copyright Act to shield your software from copying by competitors—demonstrating that the valuable aspects of your software are protectable.
Check out the rest of Marks's series in the links below and see him in action in the AltaClaro Webcast, "Stopping Software Theft: Copyright Protections and How to Enforce Them." The event focuses primarily on audience Q&A and draws on Mark’s deep experience in multi-year litigation over these issues to emphasize practical advice over legal niceties.
