Intellectual Property Advice For Software and Communications Industry

Software has transformed the way that we work, shop, learn, communicate, socialise and entertain ourselves. When it comes to intellectual property however, businesses often overlook patent protection for software-related inventions because it has become such a highly debated and complex area of IP protection. 

At Wilson Gunn, we work with businesses to determine the patentability of software-related inventions and help them understand the patent landscape.

Our attorneys work with software development companies which provide solutions for a range of industries, including healthcare, finance, energy and media. We also act for businesses who develop solutions to control other technologies, for example, flow monitoring and leak detection in pipes; wastewater system control; sensor tap control; camera calibration; electricity network management; and HVAC climate control.

Some of the software-related inventions we have protected include: image processing; medical signal analysis; financial modelling; presence monitoring; user authentication; database management systems; production fault detection; audio enhancement; music streaming; secure payment; voucher redemption; social networking; advertisement serving; and user interfaces.

We also have particular expertise in the communications sector and have knowledge of: network performance monitoring; call management; call routing; call identification; notification management; message distribution; telemetry messaging; and network security.

Whether you are a small or large company, we will guide you through the process and ensure that you have the protection to support your business goals. In addition, we can also provide advice on trade marks, copyright in software and licensing.

If you are developing innovative software, get in touch with us today for a confidential discussion.

Our software and communication specialist is partner, David Slattery.
