We are a UK-based web start-up and as far as I know it is not possible to patent software in the UK or EU (IMHO a good thing).
But we would like to protect ourselves in the US by making a provisional application. (The website after all is accessible globally.)
Has anyone had success with this (from the UK)? If not, and you have made such an application in the US, do you know what the requirements are? For example do I need a US registered office?
I've had a look at the USPTO website and there is no information for this particular scenario.
Any comments much appreciated.
