Software Patent Expert Witnesses
Software patent expert witness candidates typically have extensive experience in computer science, software development, computer forensics, electrical engineering, telecommunications, and/or information technology. A software engineer has expertise in programming languages, software development, and computer operating systems, and applies engineering principles to create software systems. In a high-profile case, or litigation involving a significant financial stake, a law firm may request a testifying expert with prior experience. In addition to technical expertise, a software expert witness must possess the ability to explain complex software issues to a judge and jury.
An intellectual property protection program stops others from using an owner’s intellectual property (e.g., trademark infringement, trade secret, trade dress, patent infringement, copyright infringement) without a licensing agreement. A patent provides the right to exclude others from making, using, or selling an invention for a period of years, in exchange for publishing an enabling public disclosure of the invention.
