What is Software Patenting? 

Software patents are regular patents. Importantly they need all the usual information and materials just like any other kind of patent. Additionally they must meet all the usual criteria for patenting. Moreover, software patent applications need extra focus and attention given to the following three things. Firstly, good flowcharts showing each step of the process. Secondly, detailed descriptions of the code – algorithms. Thirdly, a good explanation of how the software works with the hardware or machine. 

We highly recommend professional help when patenting software. Contact Carson Patents to discuss options. We can help you with drafting any patent application.
