Abstract

[With the current eruption of technological development, technology is advancing at a rapid rate. The legal world is beginning to realize a need for concomitant advancement. Laws must keep pace with technological development. The copyright laws that currently govern the development of computer software, for example, are still quite ambiguous. There is debate over the scope of the law as well as difficulty in applying the law. In the light of conflicting case law, it is troublesome for attorneys to give clients advice as to whether particular software development techniques violate copyright laws or carry other legal consequences (Behrens and Levary 1998).]
