Software Patents

Software typically refers to a set of codes or instructions capable of performing a function. In general, a set of software instructions that are not reducible to or practicable in hardware form, or do not involve the manipulation of hardware or data to produce a useful result are not patentable. Moreover, disembodied mathematical algorithms and formulas without industrial application to generate useful results are not patentable. It is the machine, process, or function employing the set of software instructions that is patentable. To patent software, a claimed method should meet the patentability criteria; that is, it must be new, useful, non-obvious, inventive, statutory, capable of industrial application, and most importantly claimed in an appropriate manner. A software patent can preclude others from utilizing a computer implemented software, program, or algorithm without permission, and can preclude others from creating a software program that performs a function in a particular way.
