Patent for software
1.In many countries, computer programs, whether in source or object code, are protected under copyright. The major advantage of copyright protection lies in its simplicity.  Copyright protection does not depend on any formalities such as registration or the deposit of copies in the 151 countries party to the Berne Convention for the Protection of Literary and Artistic Works.  This means that international copyright protection is automatic - it begins as soon as a work is created.  Also, a copyright owner enjoys a relatively long period of protection, which lasts, in general, for the life of the author plus 50 or, in certain countries, 70 years after the author’s death.
2.The intellectual property protection of computer software has been highly debated at the national and international level.  For example, in the European Union (EU), a draft Directive on the Patentability of Computer-implemented Inventions has been discussed in order to harmonize the interpretation of the national patentability requirements for computer software-related inventions, including the business methods carried out via the computer.
