Abstract: This paper provides an overview of copyright and patents as they apply to software, and how open source depends on and uses some aspects of the IPR system for its existence, but may be threatened by others. It examines the incentives to release software as open source under different legal instruments, and compares impact of legal frameworks for open source on innovation to traditional frameworks such as patenting.
