Intellectual property for software is computer code or software protected by law under either a copyright, trademark, trade secret, or software patent.
Why Intellectual Property for Software Is Important
Software innovation is valuable to individuals, start-ups, and businesses. The law is the best way to protect material such as software. To use the law as protection, programmers and businesses treat software as intellectual property.

Otherwise, people might use it without permission, and you'll lose the chance to get paid when people use your software. In extreme cases, you might lose the right to use software you created.
