Q:Can computer software be patented in China?

A:Computer programs as such cannot be patented, but may be protected under the "Regulations on Computers Software Protection", formulated in accordance with the Copyright Law. An invention containing a computer program may be patentable if the combination of software and hardware as a whole can really improve prior art, bring about technical results and constitute a complete technical solution.
