Software IP Rights Protection

XCenter IPPM™

Software Products IP rights protection methodology with code – line precision

Challenge

The current market of software developments is characterized by a standard procedure for legalization and transfer of copyrights. According to this procedure the developing company pays programmers (immediate developers) a remuneration for the work performed. The rights for intellectual property are assigned to the developing company with no additional payments. The developing company transfers the intellectual property, gained in such way, to the Client. Such scheme is the most-cost effective for the developer and generally corresponds to Part 3 Article 2 of the DIRECTIVE 2009/24/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 23 April 2009 on the legal protection of computer programs (Codified version).

Nevertheless, such a procedure of the intellectual property right transfer leaves loopholes in the law. The loopholes may be used by competitors or license trolls, while the lawfulness of the copyright acquisition by the Client (and therefore, the right of the Client for the developed software) may be challenged at any moment.

It is necessary to note that such a procedure is used by default by a prevailing majority of developing companies.
