Software is not only used in offices, but also in industry. Products and machines are equipped or developed with software. This embedded software is written to control machines or products. Examples of such types of software can be found in machines, traffic lights and cars.
Just as it is important to ‘normal’ software, (industrial) software law is also important to industrial software and provides essential rules for both software developers and software users. The industrial software industry receives many investments, which makes it essential to protect the relevant copyrights.
