Patenting Software-related Inventions

Software per se is one such excluded category. In this video, Dr Jonathan Markham from Beck Greener explains the background law. He then outlines the kinds of software-related inventions that can be patented and advises on how best to frame such an invention to meet the requirements of the UK and European patent offices.
