    Copyright/patent protecting newly developped strategies?

    Hello,

    Does anyone know if it is common practice (legally possible) to copyright/patent ones developed strategies?

    I'm not looking for legal advice (I'll contact a intellectual property (IP) lawyer for that of course) I'm simply wanting to know if it is common practice within this environment, or if the veterans here know and have learned otherwise?

    Thanks!

    I've never heard of anyone doing this, but I can't imagine that's a thing. Strategies aren't like products, and if someone makes a strategy that happens to be similar to yours, its not like there is anyone enforcement body to stop them from doing so.
    Are you thinking about selling a strategy you developed? If so, I know a lot of people go to great lengths to hide their code for that reason. I don't think there's anything they could do if it did get out.

      Hello traderzoso,

      Thank you for your post.

      I see you reached out to us by email as well and I will speak with you there as well. Please look for my email from info[at]ninjatraderecosystem[dot]com.

      We would not have any specific details on such endeavors from developers or vendors of such products.

        If you have your own lawyer, why are you asking that question again here? I handle all such matters privately in consultation with https://www.vasaadvokat.se/neka-medlemskap-i-forening/. I recently had an unpleasant situation where not only was I not allowed to protect the copyright of my project, but I was also denied membership. I was outraged. I wondered if anyone else had encountered this, so I posted my story on various forums. On one of them, I was recommended to this lawyer, who later helped me win my case.

          Hi. It's prudent to seek guidance from a seasoned gay divorce attorney to understand the legal aspects of copyrighting/patenting strategies. Their expertise can clarify your path.

            In general a process (unless a chemical process I believe) cannot be patented. You might be able to create an indicator and patent that.
            However... if your strategy is awesome... just keep it quiet and make money from it. Don't patent it. Just don't show it to anybody!!!

              Hello! I recommend consulting a lawyer for your question about the common practice and legality of copyrighting/patenting developed strategies. It's better to seek professional advice than just asking around. Many lawyers offer free consultations, so discussing your intellectual property concerns with them would be more beneficial.
