This Comment is designed to acquaint the international lawyer with various considerations which underlie the obtaining of copyright and patent protection for computer programs. Both patent and copyright protection are considered in view of the statutory provisions of several technologically developed countries-the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union. In addition, the statutory provisions of the various countries are related to the particular ideologies of the administrative agencies which implement the patent and copyright laws within each jurisdiction.
