The author examines the case for copyrighting computer programs in relation to the 1970 article â€šÃ„ÃºThe Uneasy Case for Copyright: A Study of Copyright in Books, Photocopies, and Computer Programs,â€šÃ„Ã¹ by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer. The number of programs registered with the Copyright office has reportedly bolstered Breyer's skepticism about such copyright. The risks posed by copyrighting programs were of concern to Breyer. Also assessed is the development of the software industry.
