Software patents are rapidly growing as the software industry continues to expand. With so much software being developed on a continuing basis, using a software patents expert witness or consultant is highly relevant in protecting a software-related product or service and avoiding complex litigation regarding patent infringement and validity.
Mobile device software has created a seemingly endless market for new technology and programs, making those within the industry seek out further methods of protecting and declaring ownership of their company’s output and trade secrets. Patents can be made over a wide variety of programming language for various services, including optical systems, telecommunications, signal processing, encryption methods, operating systems, Java or C++ programming, Ruby on Rails, Python, software database, and software architecture. Software patents may also be relevant to other disciplines because of the presence of such software and related technology being utilized in other fields, such as medical or financial software.
Certain experts in software patents may have a strong background in computer programming or engineering, while others may be more experienced with trademark, patent, and intellectual copyright law. Software is such a large and unique industry that “software patent” is considered an individual branch of patent law, which can become complicated regarding each particular case of software-related litigation.
