Abstract
This thesis picks up the journey from my Bachelor’s thesis where it was concluded that current legal protection of the Intellectual Property (IP) for “computer programs” and associated components is fractured and contains gaps that provides for legal uncertainty for the author/creator/inventor.

We now proceed to approach possible ways to modernize, update and improve the legal protection provided by Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in the area of the more integrated “software solutions” of today’s IT business.

This thesis picks up the journey from my Bachelor’s thesis where it was concluded that current legal protection of the Intellectual Property (IP) for “computer programs” and associated components is fractured and contains gaps that provides for legal uncertainty for the author/creator/inventor. The BSc thesis’ analysis covered IP protection provided through international treaties, statutory law and case law with a focus on the EU perspective. We now proceed to approach possible ways to modernize, update and improve the legal protection provided by Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in the area of the more integrated “software solutions” of today’s IT business. I, the author, aim to take the reader along on a journey through the fragmented borderline between technology and law. The goal is to try and establish a common baseline for a more coherent, sustainable and manageable legal solution for IP protection for the author/creator/inventor of a “software solution”. As a fuller harmonization of IPRs for “software solutions” within EU most probably would remove the above mentioned issues and thereby benefit the author/creator/inventor. (Less)
