How do I protect my intellectual property rights when developing software in Australia?
Software development entails various IP assets, from source codes to graphical interfaces. Register copyrights for the software and consider patenting innovative algorithms or functionalities. Use software licensing agreements to define user rights and restrictions. Employ strict access controls during development, and utilize NDAs with developers or third-party collaborators. Regularly backup and document development stages as evidence of original creation. Stay vigilant about similar software in the market, and should you detect infringements, consult with our IP legal professionals for enforcement actions.
