Obtaining the software registration for technology companies will make it easy to prove the authorship of the program, in case any questioning is raised in relation to it. The Software registration is facultative and the protection of the copyrights of its owner does not depend on it. The program is valid for 50 years, counted as of January 1st of the year following the year of the date of its creation.
The protection of the program title may be obtained along with the registration of the software, provided it is original and unmistakable in relation to the title of another program launched previously. The amount of the fee to be paid by the BPTO shall depend on the number of pages of the Software documents.
