Software as a service, or “SAAS”, is the concept of licensing and delivering specific software to subscribers. The concept of SAAS is so common that nearly all software today requires a subscription. SAAS has remained the largest market for public cloud services and is projected to continue to gain millions of dollars in subscriptions in the coming years.
SAAS products including applications and platforms are considered patentable subject matter by the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Hundreds of software developers obtain utility patents for their inventions every week.
If you have created an inventive SAAS technology and are seeking to protect it, you should discuss your technology with a registered patent attorney to determine if your SAAS technology is entitled to a patent. The registered patent attorneys at The Plus IP Firm have year of experience in acquiring patents on SAAS related technologies.
