Hi all,
I have a question: I developed a software application and now I`m ready to start selling it; before I do this, though, I want to protect it with a patent. How do you think it`s better: to patent it in my own name or to patent it as a product of my company?
When talking about software, is the copyright something different than patent? Can I have only the copyright and not the patent?
Thanks a bunch,
