Sorry can you clarify your question please, is your question can a software method be patented? Is the software your own or just the method?
Hi thank you for your message, I appreciate this is important to you so I will endeavour to give you a quick but clear answer. Please note this is not a chat service so responses may not be instantaneous. Without a further response I can only give a general answer which is that generally methods cannot be patented or protected. If you have come up with a new design you might be able to get design protection but this is not as strong as a patent: https://www.gov.uk/register-a-design
Hopefully, I have answered your query in a way that is simple and easy to understand. If anything remains unclear, I will be more than happy to clarify it for you. In the meantime, thank you once again for using our services.
