Special problems are occuring with so-called "software patents", which do legally not exist, because the protection of software (protected in germany by copyright law) by granted patent is excluded. A combination of a product plus a computer program as "data storage medium with a stored copy of a computer program..." can negotiate this protection obstacle with appropriate scope of protection.

In particular the following competences are covered:
