Computer Technology Software and Business Methods
Computer technology advances exponentially year after year. To keep up with the pace of innovation, companies not only work against time, they need create within a complex dynamic of new and existing technologies. Volpe Koenig works with clients to acquire and maintain protection for computer technology innovations, preserve and develop competitive advantage, and realize revenue research and development investments.
Working with precise and complicated technologies requires a combination of experience and education. Our attorneys leverage advanced degrees and proficiencies in computer engineering, electrical engineering and other technologies, along with significant experience working with clients in the industry to protect your intellectual property interests.
Patent protection is crucial. Our professionals understand how multiple technologies and patents hinge on each other. The sheer number of computer technologies involved in a single product often necessitates licensing agreements with others in the field, resulting in an even more challenging intellectual property strategy.
Volpe Koenig features dozens of computer technology professionals, including those with expertise in semiconductor design and fabrication, circuitry, memory design and processing, bus interface capability, and fiber optic systems. Our complementary experience in electrical components and optics and image processing strengthens our ability to foresee your company’s challenges and to deliver comprehensive protection of your valuable intellectual property.
There is rarely a time when you are not interfacing with software of some kind in order to conduct business. In our fast-paced and technologically savvy world, companies increasingly rely on the Internet and software to accomplish their business goals. Software programmers and business executives invent ingenious software, from e-commerce solutions to on-line business methods, with the potential to make a huge impact quickly and to grow exponentially. Protecting that software via copyrights and business method patents is a necessity, not a luxury. With the every changing dynamics prosecuting applications and litigating patents in view of 35 U.S.C. §101 (“Alice”), Volpe Koenig keeps abreast of all the latest changes and trends to obtain and protect our clients’ interests.
Digital materials, including software, are unusually susceptible to reproduction and distribution via the Internet. Additionally, the laws regarding software and business method patents are frequently shifting and it is often unclear to clients what is patentable.
Our professionals assist software engineers and business owners to protect the commercial value of the software they have developed, as well as to stake a claim on innovative new processes in order to protect their edge in the market. We do this by securing comprehensive and forward-looking intellectual property to protect the fundamental concepts that underlie the software.
