Legal Tools to Protect Software: Choosing the Right One

Abstract : This article investigates the relative merits of the different legal tools available to protect software, in the very moment when the European Community considers changing its public policy on these issues. We offer a few clear arguments on the impact that the different legal tools have on software development and innovation, and urge the readers to form their own opinion.
