As Software Patenting can be quite complex and peculiar, there are a lot of misconceptions and myths held about it which deter Startup Founders and Corporations from filing for a software patent. In the last episode, Cynthia started to cover the most common and dangerous myths about software patenting.
In this episode, we will discuss the following myths:
- It’s only important to obtain patents if you plan to sue competitors for infringement and litigation
- Obtaining patents on software is somehow immoral and that it locks up innovation
- Once you hire someone to work for you, your rights are protected simply because you’re paying them
It’s important to discuss these myths as it could well be the belief that’s stopping you from filing for a Software Patent and obtaining the protection you need for your invention.
