In Europe, software is not patentable. However, the European Patent Office examines tens of thousands of patent applications in the IT field each year, and grants a good number of them. These patents are granted for “computer-implemented inventions”, respecting the classic criteria for patentability. We assess whether your software is eligible for patent protection, and whether patents offer an appropriate protection for your project. We recommend alternative or complementary means of protection.
