In this postgraduate thesis we approach the various aspects of projects in the category of software, in light of recent developments in the field of Information Technology Law. Initially, there is an introductory report and an initial approach to the basics of the legal profession as the acts and contracts, by focusing on the intellectual property rights. It then analyzes the rights and obligations arising and are inherent with computer programs in general and software in particular. Further, we attempt to distinguish between the different types encapsulated in the concept of software, since the latter is a multifaceted and rapidly evolving technological object. Next is a listing and analysis of all forms of contractual relationships that apply and concern specifically and exclusively software. Although it is an intangible asset, the software may be subject to both a concession for use and maintenance, as well as product development to prior order. Of course, like the majority of work objects in the IT sector nowadays, so is the software directly and significantly affected by the spread of the Internet. In this context there is, therefore, reference to the role of the Internet, in software developing and marketing, as well as the law for industrial property in matters related to software. Also we approach the forms of violation of the text of law that protects the software, such as piracy, but we could not miss a reference to international legislation, which shows us in real terms the application of the law in matters relating to software.
