Summary
  • An increase in software copyright violation suits may lead to greater costs, a reduction in available programs, and more training. The Whelan vs Jaslow case resulted in copyright law protection for a programmer's exact code and for the overall organization and structure of the program. Digital Communications, producer of the Crosstalk communications program, won its case against SoftKlone, a publisher of a clone program that violated the copyright of the single 'status' screen of Digital's Crosstalk program. Publishers that want to produce programs based on the design of similar programs will have to change the instructions and screens of their programs.
